Dopff + Irion

dopff + irion cremant blanc de blancs nv 750ml

$24.99

The history of sparkling wine production in Alsace is said to go back to around the year 1900, when Julien Dopff is said to have applied the “champagne method” to his own Alsatian wines with satisfactory results.. The Cremant Blanc de Blancs Brut is a pale-yellow color with fine and light bubbles. The nose is characterized by fruit aromas such as green apple or lemon. The flavor is round and elegant. Well-balanced and perfectly dry, it has fine, persistent, lasting bubbles.

WINEMAKING
Direct pneumatic pressing (vertical drains to obtain high quality juices), clarification, controlled fermentation temperatures, racking and maturing on fine lees for 4 months. Ageing in vats for 5 months before bottling.

TASTING NOTES
COLOR: Light bubbles, subtle golden robe with silver tints, transparent and luminous.
AROMAS: Sophisticated notes of apple, quince, fine herbs, a hint of tarragon, discreet cinnamon and saffron.
PALATE: Fresh and supple, refined with citrus notes, fruit and almond on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
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.

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

WE90, Wine Enthusiast

"Notions of creamy lemon yeast burst with every bubble that rises to this wine’s surface. The body adds a subtle, textural yeasty backdrop while bubbles continue to froth, transporting more freshness against a mellow background. Slender, bright, vivid and smooth, it makes a beautiful aperitif."

 

D90, Decanter

"Crisp lemon zest on the nose with an elegant and fresh palate. Real finesse on a long perfumed finish."
