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 trained according to the Guyot system and green harvests in
conjunction with strict canopy management, ensure good light penetration and
ventilation for the berries. The soils in the vineyard are warm and volcanic with the
presence of granite. The grapes are manually harvested once they have reached
optimum maturity.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures to
optimise the varietal expression and purity of fruit flavours.
Tasting Note
A prominent fruity nose complemented by smoky notes very typical of the varietal.
Very powerful in the mouth with a dry, balanced, mineral finish.
Serving Suggestion
Partners well with white meats such as chicken or veal with creamy sauces, game
pâtés or rich game birds such as guinea fowl.
