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 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. 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 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 Gewurztraminer 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 off-dry wine.
