Dopff & Irion

Based in the Hansel and Gretel-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

Brilliant salmon pink in colour. Aromas and flavours of red and black berries, wild strawberries, red currant, fresh thyme. Discreet roasted notes, brioche and tarragon.

Food Matches

An excellent aperitif, or try will Italian-style grilled vegetables, or chicken with tarragon.

Vinification

Grapes from various years are used to produce this outstanding sparkling wine. Entire bunch pressing is carried out, the wine is carefully made at a controlled temperature with a subsequent secondary fermentation process inside the bottle.
