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

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 !
