Domaine Isabelle Lippe – a unique Female Operated Winery

Domaine Isabelle Lippe – Isabelle and Claudine Lippe is the sixth generation of their family to make wines at in Gevrey-Chambertin. They are among the only 5% of Burgundy winegrowers owned and operated by women. However, they did not wish to wait to inherit the family vineyard. After studying viticulture, Isabelle and Claudine first rented just one hectare in 2004. Their domain grew but the owner decided to take back the land. Fortunately, an opportunity arose for the sisters to buy vineyards at Brochon . The winery owns vineyards that cover an area of 120 hectares. A line running north-south nicely divides the vineyard. To the south, they have around 50 hectares in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. On the other side, there are approximately 40 hectares in Côtes de Nuits Villages appellation. The remainder is part of the regional Burgundy appellation. The soil is mostly clay-limestone and the elevation is between 250 and 320 meters.

The Beauty and Simplicity of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Notes of hazelnuts and honey characterize the white wines, while the reds are soft and subtle with pronounced berry aromas and flavors. In spite of the limited varieties, the varying terroir adds character.

Unadorned and Effective Winemaking Methods

The methods are also simple and reasoned. Avoiding use of chemicals and plowing the soil to aerate it and remove unwanted plants embody the vineyard practices. Picking and sorting is done entirely by hand. The pressed grapes go into vats initially for 15 to 20 days. This develops the color and the tannins. They ferment with indigenous yeasts then age the wine in oak barrels in this one of a kind winery.
