History

As early as 1900, Julien DOPFF trained in Champagne and later returned to his native Alsace region to use the technique to produce sparkling wines with the grapes from his own vineyards. He is considered the pioneer of quality sparkling wines in Alsace.

Under the guidance of Pierre DOPFF, the appellation Crémnant d'Alsace was created on August 26th, 1976. It laid down very rigorous standards.

Made purely from Pinot Noir with a slightly stronger dosage. This wine has a lovely full earthy fruit, with very good Pinot Character.
