Dopff & Irion

Based in the Hansel and Gretal-like village of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, this highly respected producer, dating back to the 16th century is now in the hands of the Cave de Pfaffenheim. Established in 1957 by the growers of the villages of Pfaffenheim and Gueberschwir, this is one of the top cooperatives in Alsace. There is a very focused and evironmentally friendly vineyard regime, all grapes are handpicked and a great deal of investment has gone into the winery.

Tasting Notes

Light golden in appearance with silver tints, transparent and luminous. Sophisticated notes of apple and almost floral hints. The palate is fresh and supple, with refined citrus notes, fruit and almond on the finish.

Food Matches

Perfect as an aperitif with dried fruit, or at the dinner table with salmon rillettes, prawns, Carpaccio of sea bream with basil, sushi, tabouleh, vegetable terrine, grilled sole with lemon. It goes wonderfully well with fresh goat’s cheese. Equally worth trying at dessert time with vacherin and cheesecake.
