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 and since 2020 they hold the
sustainable HVE certification.

Vineyard
The Alsace climate is characterised by the alternation of warm days and cool nights
during the autumn, which offers ideal conditions for the slow and gradual maturation of
the grapes, concentrating the fruit flavours from the warmth of the sun, while retaining
a balancing acidity from the cool nights. The Vosges Mountains act as a natural
barrier, protecting the vineyard against heavy rainfall. This reduces the risk of disease
and facilitates limited treatment in the 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 grapes are
hand-harvested at optimal maturity. They hold the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE)
certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers,
including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use
and water resource management.
Winemaking
The grapes were 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.
