Dopff & Irion make their Cremant Brut in exactly the same way as Champagne, though their grape blend includes Pinot Blanc. The result is a fine sparkling wine with light bubbles and sophisticated notes of apple, quince, fine herbs and discreet spices. On the palate, it is fresh, supple and refined with citrus notes and almond on the finish.
Here is what the Wine Enthusiast magazine has to say:
Dopff & Irion NV Blanc de Blancs Brut Pinot Auxerrois (Crémant d’Alsace); $19, 90 points. 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. —Anne Krebiehl MW
