The Tasting of Anarchiste

Anarchiste by Kumpf & Meyer (Julien Albertus) is an orange wine from Alsace (France) of Muscat from 2 different vintages. 5 days of skin contact for the 2017 and direct pressing for the 2020.

Complex, there are a lot of citrus fruits, pear, apricot, lychee, spices, a slight tannin matter (without heaviness or aggressiveness) and a nice acidity which refining the wine. Very nice discovery for the price!

The history of Kumpf and Meyer in Alsace

Son and daughter of winegrowers, Sophie Kumpf and Philippe Meyer settled in Rosheim (Alsace) in 1997. They quite naturally named their estate Kumpf & Meyer. The years pass, Philippe wants to change… Sophie, a little carefree as she says herself, continues to take care of the vineyard alone. Then in 2010, Julien Albertus, trained at Zusslin’s estate, took over the vines. As soon as he arrived, overflowing with ideas, energy and convictions, he breathed new life into the estate and wines. Stressed at first, he learned over time to let go…

Domaine Kumpf & Meyer

When Julien Albertus arrives, he converts the vines of Kumpf Meyer estate, plunging their roots into clay-limestone soil, into organic farming. This implies, for him, no fertilizer of mineral origin or phytosanitary products derived from chemistry, natural grassing, very little or no ploughing. Julien will also plant plants that have agronomic interests (legumes, cereals, crucifers, etc.) in order to bring some ecological diversity. There is a more life around… And you can feel it (as always) in the wines!

Julien Albertus wines

Then in a logical continuation, Julien Albertus’ wines are vinified in the most natural way possible by starting the experiment “without sulfites” in 2012 on the Pinots Noirs.. In 2016, all the cuvées will no longer have any input. In our opinion, the estate offers real mastered terroirs wines at a very good price/pleasure ratio. It’s hard to find better in the region… Because even the “cheap” bottles are already superb! The 15 hectares make it possible to offer a wide range of Kumpf and Meyer’s wines: Pet Nat, skin contact, tense, round, singular, easy going… There is something for everyone!
