Cote de Nuit Villages
Marchand-Tawse is a co-venture between native Quebecois turned Burgundian Pascal Marchand and Canadian Moar Tawse. This duo of vignerons / micro-négociants are working with their partner-growers in the many appellations of Burgundy, they embrace organic and biodynamic farming practices and craft wines of purity and class.
The grapes are sourced from vineyards spread over a few areas South of the Cote de Nuits in Corgoloin, “Au Clou”, “Les Perrieres”, “Les Monts de Boncourt” et “Les Retraits”. Gentle and regular slopes with a range of soil types that vary from the top of the hill to the base; lime, pebbly scree, brown soils over alluvium. The Pinot Noir grapes are destemmed, 5 days cold maceration, one punch down a day at the start of alcoholic fermentation, then pump-overs for gentle extraction. The wine ages for 16 months in French oak barrels (15% new) and is racked once after malolactic fermentation before bottling. It is not filtered or fined.
