2019 Anders F. Steen I can see You from the other side of the Valley14094350
Former chef, once sommelier at Noma, Anders started making wine in 2013 alongside legendary Jura winemaker, Jean-Marc Brignot. Now settled in the village of Valvignères in the Ardèche, his wines are truly unique and highly sought-after across the world. Grapes and only grapes, no adds, no sulphur. Tiny quantities.
60% grenache blanc from estate vines, 40% viognier grown by the Oustrics of Le Mazel. Pressed slowly over four days with an old vertical press before a year of élevage in old foudre. Bottled with 8-10 grams of residual sugar offering a gentle spritz and touch of sweetness.
"A white wine with a light sweet expression of exotic fruits and flowers, jasmines, white roses, litchi, almost pineapple-like flavours. All these aromas are followed up by both saltiness and acidity extracted from the skins when the grapes were pressed." - Anders Frederik Steen
