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 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. Dopff au Moulin holds 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 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 2020 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.
