2020 Anders F. Steen Quand tu balances, je te tiens au bout du doigt, et te ramène vers moi12043
WINEMAKER: Anders Frederik Steen & Anne Bruun Blauert
REGION: Ardèche, FR
VARIETAL: Marsanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Carignan
Originally this wine was meant to be white - A blend of Marsanne and Sauvignon Blanc. But the two juices didn't work well together, so in the end of the harvest, we decided to add some direct pressed Carrigan. It made the wine better, but it didn't take us exactly all the way to where we wanted to be with this wine. We ended up adding a little bit of destemmed grapes of Carignan, to macerated for about 6 weeks. The light red juice went into barrels and the following year the wine fermented in demi-muids. Both juices was pressed direct during 3-4 days.
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.
