MARCHAND TAWSE 2020 6-PACK
My friend, Pascal Marchand, is famous.
You probably know the story by now.
He's famous because he stood Burgundy on its head, and changed the course of a generation.
We've been presenting his wines under one name or another since 1987.
And now here we are, with a tiny allocation of the very small but hugely mediatic 2020 vintage.
One of the great modern Burgundy domains

Includes 2 bottles of each RED:
Marchand-Tawse Morey St Denis 1er Cru 'Clos des Ormes' 2020
Stellar bouquet of Christmas spices and glazed cherries. You think of a special occasion the moment you pull the cork. Full and balanced on the palate, generous (as the French like to say) with soft tannins that are still at work. This is a wine to save for a special occasion a few years on.
Marchand-Tawse Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 'Les Fuees' 2020
Pure and pretty, floral, violets and plummy. Lush, dense and mineral. Fine, lacy, deep and lingering.
Marchand-Tawse Chambolle Musigny 2020
The wines of Chambolle-Musigny are situated somewhere between the strength of Bonnes-Mares and the finesse of Musigny. With these two great Grand Cru, and a couple dozen excellent 1er Cru vineyards, in the tiniest of villages, Chambolle is a focal point of what makes Burgundy Burgundy. We talk of silk and lace, feminine (the un-PC French always say). This village wine is an assemblage two parcels from the lower slopes 'Les Sordes' and 'Les Chardannes', and gives you that juicy black cherry black currant fruit, smoky and fine. And then the intensity starts to climb, slowly at first, then vigorously through to an energetic finish.
