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.


Vineyard
The vines are trained according to the Guyot system. Green harvests in conjunction
with strict canopy management, ensure good light penetration and ventilation for
the berries during the ripening period. 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
The grapes were carefully selected and pressed in whole bunches. A short
decantation was followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled
temperatures, to optimise the varietal expression and purity of fruit flavours.


Tasting Note
The 2019 shows a delicate and elegant bouquet of white floral aromas, white fruits
and a subtle hint of honey. This is a dry, racy wine with linear freshness and beautiful
texture with white stone fruits leading to a long, harmonious finish.
