This wine is a brilliant golden color. Ample, well-ripened and mellow, it exhales notes of fresh citrus fruit, lemon marmalade, orange peel and mild spices. Citrus fruit and pineapple flavors burst on the palate. This wine is especially impressive in terms of balance and offers plenty of length on the finish. Well-structured, it is at once rich and refined. Its attack is present with heaps of freshness and minerality. Full with good long lasting fruit.
Dopff & Irion Double Impact
The Irion and the Dopff families were already wine connoisseurs in the 16th century and have been closely involved in the fortunes of the village of Riquewihr throughout the ages. The firm of Dopff & Irion was established when Rene Dopff joined fortunes with the widowed Madame Irion. Rene Dopff was the first to have faith in the concept of “terroir,” the restructuring of the vineyard by dividing it into five “domains” or estates, and then planting each one with the most suitable grape variety.
