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.
Vintage
2020 saw excellent weather conditions during the ripening period, with hot, dry
weather allowing the sun-kissed grapes to reach full maturity. 2020 was an early
vintage which produced high quality fruit.
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
according 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 and muschelkalk. 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 harvested at optimum maturity, carefully selected and pressed in
whole bunches. A short clarification by 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.
