Domaine Agapé was established as late as 2007 in the outskirts of Riquewihr. Much has been written about Vincent Sipps earlier, multi-year partnership in Hunawihr before he established Agapé. In itself the history is uninteresting, but maybe the unexpected establishment of Domaine Agapé contributed to the company's very modern way of operation. The wines are technically flawless, the terroirs are expressed in the best way and the product line is consumer friendly.

Complex, yet undeveloped, fragrance with forest honey, grapefruit, passion fruit, toasted walnuts and a little spicy botrytis. The palate is medium-bodied and dry with grapefruit zest, rich fruit, excellent acidity and a long, seductive finish. Impressive!

2013 was good for Riesling but small harvest due to hail, which knocked out up to 40% of the crop. Lower volume but higher quality especially in the Grand Cru.
