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 vineyards are situated in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains, extending
over 160 kilometres, from Cleebourg in the north to Thann in the south. Situated on the
fracture zone between the lowlands and the mountains, this feature generates variety
of subsoils. The soils in this vineyard are marl and sandstone, the latter is rich in ironbased minerals. Protected by the Vosges Mountains, these vineyards have the lowest
average annual rainfall of all French wine regions. The vines are Guyot pruned. Green
harvesting in conjunction with strict canopy management, ensure good sunlight
penetration and ventilation for the berries during the ripening period. The grapes are
manually harvested once they have reached optimum 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
Fermentation took place with selected yeasts under cool, temperature controlled
conditions, in order to maintain the purity of fruit. Successive rackings were undertaken
for clarification and then the wine was stored on its fine lees for five months in steel
tanks, imparting texture and concentrating the flavours.
Tasting Note
Fresh and lively aromas of citrus notes and apple blossom combine with subtle spice
and white pepper on this crisp, dry and smooth Pinot Blanc.
