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.


Vintage
Harvest started on 6th September 2019, 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.


Vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the lieu-dit of Gehey, in Riquewihr, on a gently sloping
hillside with an eastern orientation. The terroir is made up of sandy clay soils with
good drainage. Pruned according to the Guyot system, the vines undergo a green
harvest and meticulous canopy management, to ensure good light penetration and
air flow during the ripening period. The grapes are harvested by hand when they
have reached optimum maturity.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and carefully selected. The grapes
were whole bunch pressed, prior to a static settling process. Fermentation took
place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, maintaining the purity of
fruit, the varietal characteristics of Gewürztraminer and the absolute expression of
terroir.


Tasting Note
An intense bouquet delivering an explosion of exotic fruits - lychee, passionfruit and
melon. Floral hints of rose, yellow stone fruits, honey and spice complete this
complex, richly textured and aromatic wine.
