Wine Feature: Dopff & Irion ‘Crustaces’


We dare you to buy the ugliest label in the wine world.

No, really. We dare you. This back-to-the-80s-looking white from Alsace in France is all you need for these warm, springtime temps and ever-lengthening days. We’re talking about a fresh, clean, unoaked, can’t-wait-for-another-sip white made primarily from a grape called Sylvaner–one of France’s (and Germany’s) best-kept grape secrets. If you like Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigios, Elblings, wines from Savoie, or any other crisp and mineral-driven white wines, there should be no hemming and hawing about this wine.

PAIRS WITH: everything you see on that silly label, with any starter course, cheese plates, or just by itself
