The legendary trajectory of Pascal Marchand continues to reverberate in the glasses. And now more intensely, by bringing biodynamics to the making of low-intervention wines, in his domaine Marchand-Tawse. Pascal was at the helm of two of Burgundy's most acclaimed biodynamic domaines, the Comte Armand in Pommard, and another star of our portfolio, the Domaine de La Vougeraie in Vougeot. He has accumulated a prodigious experience in the terroirs of the Côte d’Or, and in association with Moray Tawse, they produce wines of stupendous quality, which express their origins with airy lightness and “goût de terroir”.
Almost 40 years old vines in clay and just above limestone. Half of the cuvee vinified with stalks and 17-month élevage in French oak barrels, only 25% of which are new. All viticulture and winemaking guided by the lunar/biodynamic calendar.
Absolutely refined and ready to behold. Light earthy notes, red fruit and a lot of limestone in a light body, but intense in its definition of flavors. Incredible chalky finish that lasts for several seconds.
