Now is When I Know I Love You 2019


In a tiny cellar underneath his home in the village of Valvignères, Anders Frederik Steen’s creativity knows no bounds. This Chardonnay grown by the Oustic family in Valvignères was pressed slowly over four days, lending plenty of colour, flesh and grip. A deep, dark amber, the nose is heavy with orange zest and spice, the tannins firm and the palate bone dry. This both softens and blossoms with a little air, revealing layers of nuance and detail.
