Dopff & Irion
Based in the Hansel and Gretal-like village of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, this 27 ha, highly respected producer, created by the marriage of two of Alsace’s wine families, was established in 1945. The historic Château de Riquewihr which dates back to the 16th Century, now Dopff & Irion’s cellar and tasting room, was once owned by the Princes of Wurtemberg. There is a very focused and environmentally friendly vineyard regime in place, all grapes are handpicked and a great deal of investment has gone into the winery in recent years.
Pale straw in colour. Fresh, with white flowers and a slight mineral, gun flint character giving real charm. Well balanced, with good weight, citrus and green apple flavours and a hint of minerality. A Riesling with a delicious fruitiness and good body. Very enjoyable !
