MARCHAND TAWSE SPOTLIGHT
The collaboration of Pascal Marchand with another Canadian, Moray Tawse of the Tawse Winery in Niagara, one of Canada's most recognized wineries, gave birth to the new Maison Marchand-Tawse in 2011. And at last Pascal Marchand has all the pieces of the puzzle lined up. This promises to be an extraordinary adventure!

Marchand-Tawse Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Lavieres' 2019
‘Les Lavieres’ sits below the ‘Les Vergelesses’ on well-drained lava-like limestone (hence ‘Lavieres’). The wine is Savigny delicate, but generous, with a structure and balance based on fine tannins. Ruby red, ample and suave, this is a Savigny with aging potential and lots of youthful charm. Your choice.
Marchand-Tawse Volnay 1er Cru 'Les Fremiets' 2019
Rich purple, this 1er cru Fremiets delivers an intensity of ripe deep cherry and dark raspberry fruit. This supple intensity continues through on the palate and there remains a nice acidity to maintain an excellent balance through to a fine clean long finish.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019
From the first whiff you know there is substance here. The nose is so expressive and full of black fruit. There’s great tannic structure, but well integrated. There’s charm. fresh, soft and spicy. And what you find in the nose lingers to a long delicate finish.
Marchand-Tawse Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Vergelesses' Blanc 2019
Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Vergelesses’ sits, you guessed it, in the northeast part of Savigny where the valley butts up to the Pernand-Vergelesses premier cru vineyard of the same name. It’s a bit confusing, especially when you add in another premier cru called ‘Ile des Vergelesses which, you guessed it again, sits in the middle of the other two. Steep, south-facing limestone soil with a very chalky make up yields wine of complex minerality and freshness. 25% new oak lets the fruit and flowers sing.
Marchand-Tawse Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru 'Champs Gains' 2019
White flowers, orange blossom, lemon drops and honey. That’s a classic Puligny-Montrachet profile. And here it comes with a soft touch and a judicious use of oak. Elegant, mineral as only Puligny Montrachet can be. A premier cru worth its appellation.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Blanc 2019
From parcels around Savigny-les Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, this is a cuvee designed to show Pascal Marchand’s vision of Chardonnay. Floral, with that Corton Mountain minerality, great acidity that makes it mouth-wateringly juicy and open. It’s ready. A lovely image of white from the middle reaches of the Cote d’Or.
