Dopff au Moulin Grand Cru Schoenenbourg Riesling

The Schoenenbourg Grand Crus are wines which age wonderfully, developing intense and rich aromas. The terroir microclimate is particularly suited for the prestigious Vendanges Tardives and Sélections de Grains Nobles.

Dopff au Moulin Grand Cru Schoenenbourg Riesling requires patience. If young this wine already has lots of charm, it’s really only after ageing for five to seven years that it fully expresses its potential, to then preserve its qualities for years after.

Known since the early Middle Ages, Schoenenbourg wine was famous throughout all the northern European countries as of the 16th century. The great Swiss mapmaker Merian, mentions it in 1663:

“Schoenenbourg, where the most noble wine of this country is produced… “

Voltaire owned several acres.

During early vintage: A tender weight with exotic fragrances gives tasters an intense sensation blended with a complex smoothness, which precedes a minerality evoking warm pebbles.

During late vintage: a greater exuberance giving structured wines which leave room for a “gunpowder” minerality. The aromatic range reveals subtle notes of fresh or dried flowers.

Producer

Wine growers since 1574, today, 3 generations manage the Dopff’s estate. With more than 70 hectares of productive vineyard, Dopff ‘Au Moulin’ has become the most important domain in the heart of the best wine region. It is mainly situated around the little town of Riquewihr, on the south-facing slopes of the Schoenenbourg.

The fine art of Alsatian wine: since 1574, the Dopff family, from father to son, has dedicated themselves with fervor and enthusiasm to this divine alchemy born from the subtle union of native soil and vine.

Wine growers, first and foremost, they uphold the rigorous ethics of their profession, which means that only natural wines from the best grapes are produced under their name ant that they are lovingly tended following the traditional methods.

It is this know-how and rigour which we invite you to discover through the history of a family which is closely interwoven with that of the most auspicious of Alsatian homelands: that of the charming medieval town of Riquewihr.

In 1913 Julien Dopff was the first to have the idea of commercializing wine in stemmed bottles, the elegance of which, even to this day, distinguishes Alsace wine from other wines.

This ‘invention’ was not easily accepted. In order to combat reticence and to prove the perfect conservation of bottled Alsace wine, Julien Dopff wagered that his bottles would be able to support the journey from Alsace to Australia and back.

The demonstration was so brilliant that the jury of the Strasbourg Exhibition awarded him the highest possible distinction – the silver medal with the inscription ‘for a particularly successful achievement’.

This little revolution meant that Alsace wine could set off to conquer Paris France and… the rest of the world. As proof of its supremacy the Dopff enterprise became suppliers to all the great steam ships and long-distance mail boats.
