Domaine Anderson Chardonnay 2019

Producer Information

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 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.


The 50 acres of Domaine Anderson vineyard wines span the Anderson Valley, from the warmer, up-Valley town of Boonville to the cooler regions closer to the Mendocino coast. They reside on the valley floor, on gently sloped knolls, and on steep hillsides, and offer soils ranging from rocky, river gravels to the finest clay loams. The Chardonnay is produced from grapes sourced exclusively from Estate owned vineyards, allowing complete control over stewardship of the land.


Hand-picked at night from certified organic vineyards in Anderson Valley, our estate blend embodies the meso-climates from the small towns of Boonville and Philo. Grapes were pressed whole cluster to ensure a clean settling off gross lees. Once racked, a native yeast fermentation is allowed to finish in small oak barrels. Cool cellar temperatures during the winter months promote a slow, indigenous malolactic fermentation which lasts through the following spring conserving freshness and energy. Wine is aged for 10 months in barrel with a light touch of new oak before bottling at the end summer. Estate vineyard sources: Walraven 61% (certified CCOF Organic) and Dach 39% (certified CCOF Organic and Demeter Biodynamic).
