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
With a south to south eastern orientation, the vineyard lines the Riquewihr hillside and
has an average elevation of 250 metres above sea level. The vines are pruned to the
Guyot system, with a green harvest and meticulous canopy management to ensure
good light penetration and air flow. The soils in the vineyard are made up of Vosges
sandstone, gravel and muschelkalk.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity, carefully selected and pressed in
whole bunches. A short sedimentation was followed by fermentation in stainless steel
tanks at controlled temperatures. This was made in an unoaked style maintaining
the purity of fruit, the varietal characteristics of Riesling and the absolute expression of
terroir.


Tasting Note
A delicate floral bouquet is complemented by expressive and characteristic lemon
notes. Supple and fruity, on the palate this is dry and zesty with refreshing mineral
notes; a great expression of Alsace Riesling.
