Ex-chef, NOMA alumni, Danish ex-pat; Anders now makes wine with his family in the Ardèche. His wines have developed a cult-following for their honest expression of this part of the world, where vineyards have been tended organically for decades.
100% Pinot Noir, fruit sourced from Bannwarth in Obermorschwihr, Alsace. 25% distemmed grapes of Pinot Noir and 75% pressurage direct. Macerated for one night only (not enough for the juice to take on any colour, just for structure). After the press it was put directly into fibreglass tank, then racked and transferred to age in old barriques. Bottled in July 2020. No topping up the barrels, it is an oxidative wine. Not vin jaune, but fairly oxidative..'- High Hopes Wines Co
