Wine of the Week –Cuvée René Dopff Pinot Blanc, 2015

This Pinot Blanc from Dopff & Irion comes from Alsace and is 100 percent Pinot Blanc. The wine is aged for four months on fine lees and undergoes filtration before being stored in a stainless steel tank for several months prior to bottling.

The estate, relatively “young” in Alsace, was created in 1945 and today, cultivates some 68-plus acres of vines. This well balanced, dry crisp wine has notes of yellow Mirabelle plum as well as pear and good minerality. It received 89 points and a Best Buy designation from Wine Enthusiast.

It is fruity and fresh with honeyed notes. Serve with Oriental and spicy cuisine, the winery suggests/ Go to https://www.dopff-irion.com/
