Producer Note
The Dopff family have been winegrowers since 1574 and still manage the 70 hectare
estate near the charming medieval town of Riquewihr.The vineyards are more than
300 metres above sea level, nestled in the foothills of the lower Vosges, sheltered
from the northerly winds and the rain from the west. The southerly exposure of the
vineyards and favourable microclimate lend themselves to the art of producing
excellent wine. As a family of pioneers, they were responsilble for the use of the
stemmed wine bottles, which today distinguish Alsace wines from other regions. In
1900, tenth generation, Julien Dopff, was so impressed by the Champagne tastings
held in Paris' World Exhibition, he decided to learn the art of winemaking in
Champagne for 2 years before returning to Alsace. Initially, the Dopff family bought
juice in barrels from Champagne, blended, processed and aged the wines in
Ricquewihr. However, after WW II Julien Dopff strongly believed that a Crémant
made from local grape varieties and reflecting the terroir of Alsace should be
produced and protected. In 1976, together with 5 other producers, he finally
obtained official recognition for Crémant d'Alsace as an AOC.
Vineyard
The vines are Guyot pruned and undergo a green harvest and meticulous canopy
management to ensure good light penetration and air flow, resulting in healthy,
concentrated berries. The soils in the vineyard are predominantly granitic.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and carefully selected.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures,
maintaining the purity of fruit and the varietal characteristics of Pinot Noir.
Tasting Note
A vibrant cherry nose with hints of violet, followed by delicate red fruit flavours on the
palate with soft tannins and a fresh, dry finish.
Serving Suggestion
A versatile food wine, which accompanies cold meats platters, pâtés and terrines.
