Domaine Anderson is nestled in the breathtaking, fog-cooled hillside and mountain terrain of Northern California's Anderson Valley. Purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer in 2011, the Dach family vineyard prides itself on its limited production and classical wine making style. The cooling marine climate characteristic of this region provides ideal conditions for the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. All the wines are crafted with precision and care to express the uniqueness of the Anderson Valley terroir. The Chardonnay is made from grapes sourced exclusively from wholly-owned Anderson Valley vineyards, giving the team complete control over farming practices and stewardship of the land. 100% Estate Chardonnay grapes, hand-picked from meticulously farmed blocks. Before pressing, the grapes are macerated to extract structural and aromatic precursors. After drying, the wines begin slow, controlled malolactic fermentation. Battonage, the stirring of the lees, is carried out on specific barrels, as required. The wine is aged for 11 months in 20% new oak and blended by the winemaking team. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying "A vivid gold color distinguishes this grand wine at the first glance, and then lightly spicy aromas and a gorgeous combo of buttery and fruity flavors come forward. Generous flavors make it very compelling, while the texture that is at once lightly acidic and smooth completes the package."
