Domaine Anderson Pinot Noir is an elegant, complex wine that showcases the beauty and nuance of the Anderson Valley region in California. This wine is made from grapes grown in a variety of soils, elevations, and vineyard sites in the region, resulting in a wine of depth and character. The aroma is of dark cherries, black tea, and earthy notes that continue onto the palate with flavors of black cherry, raspberry, and hints of spice and vanilla. It has a smooth and silky texture with well-balanced acidity and tannins, leading to a long and satisfying finish. Domaine Anderson Pinot Noir is a wine of exceptional quality that is perfect for pairing with roasted meats, grilled fish, or creamy and rich sauces.
A chameleon in the glass, the 2013 Domaine Anderson Pinot Noir oscillates among aromas of black cherries, turned earth and cloves with hints of wood smoke. The black cherry is echoed on the pallet. The firm tannic core is enveloped in a satiny robe of black and red cherries and red plum skin flavours. Earthy bark spice and exotic oak flavours intermingle with fresh fruits. Generous without heaviness, the wine is sophisticated and confident.
About the Winery
Located in Anderson Valley in Northern California, Domaine Anderson is a notable winery famous in The United States of America. Established by the patriarch and head of the Louis Roederer family, Jean-Claude Rouzaud, in 1981, it started its story with the cultivation of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties.
The winery enjoys an ideal microclimate with warm days with cold and foggy nights. Domaine Anderson owns 50 acres of vineyards owned by the Roederer family. They remain spread across the diverse terroir of the Anderson Valley and get dedicated to the plantation of the two grape varieties with which the winery began.
The newly set-up Dach Vineyard of Domaine Anderson employs a biodynamic and organic cultivation system. The staff at the plot aim to create a balanced and varied ecosystem that can conserve nature. Additionally, they strive to provide habitat to beneficial insects such as bees, ladybugs, beetles, and birds like hummingbirds. In turn, it helps them control the pests affecting the grapevines. Instead, it facilitates pollination. The winery uses natural compost to enhance the qualities of their plants and fruits and restore the soil.
Overall, Domaine Anderson remains committed to sustainable methods and practices in their vineyards. They toil to preserve the characteristics and health of the land to allow future generations to receive its blessings. On top of that, the irrigation style gets adjusted depending on the location and type of soil. The winery has various designs that work to minimise the impact caused on the wildlife and nearby streams.
Today, Domaine Anderson gets supervised and overseen by Frederic, Jean-Claude’s son. Since taking over, he has carried on the beliefs and practices implemented by his father. For this reason, the management practices at the vineyards and winery focus on achieving the best possible quality even to this day.
