Producer Note
Established in Riquewihr in 1574, the Dopff family has dedicated itself to producing
fine Alsatian wine for over 13 generations. A pioneering family, they were responsible
for the stemmed wine bottles, which today still distinguish Alsace wines from other
regions. In 1900, tenth generation Julien Dopff was so impressed by the Champagne
tastings held in Paris, he learnt the art of winemaking in Champagne for two years
before returning to Alsace. After WWII Julien Dopff strongly believed that a Crémant
made from local grape varieties which reflected the terroir of Alsace should be
protected. In 1976, together with five other producers, Dopff finally obtained official
recognition for Crémant d'Alsace as an AOC. Their 70 hectares of vineyard are
situated at 300 metres elevation, nestled in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains.

Harvest started on 6th September 2018, with Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris; the
Riesling grapes were harvested from 20th September. The yields were higher than
the previous year and the fruit picked was in an excellent, healthy condition, due to
the warm, dry ripening period throughout the summer. The fruit offers concentrated
flavours, with excellent maturity.

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.

The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum maturity, carefully selected and whole
bunch pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled
temperatures and lasted for 12 days. The wine was aged in stainless steel vats
maintaining the purity of fruit, the varietal characteristics of Pinot Noir and the
nuances of the Alsace terroir.

Tasting Note
A vibrant fruity nose with hints of violet and red wild fruit aromas. Fruity, with a soft
texture on the beautifully balanced palate through to a fresh, dry finish.
