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
Guyot system with green harvest and meticulous canopy management to ensure
good light penetration and air flow.
Winemaking
The grapes are gently crushed and pressing is limited to 100 litres of must per 150kg
of grapes. The first fermentation is carried out in stainless steel and glass tanks, while
the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, using the traditional Champagne
method. The wine is aged for 18 months in bottle on its lees with automatic riddlings
using gyropallets. This Crémant D'Alsace is mostly based on a single vintage,
currently being 2012 crop.
