About the producer
With over 25 years of winemaking experience at renowne Burgundy domaines such as Comte Armand and Domaine de la Vougeraie, and as a consultant in Chile, California, Canada and Australia, Pascal Marchand possesses a deep understanding of terroir-driven wines; leading to the creation of his micro-négociant at the beginning of 2006. For Pascal’s first vintage, he produced almost 1,000 cases from 7 different wines, mainly from the Côte de Nuits. He now offers in excess of 40 different appellations from the Côte de Nuits, as well as a smattering of wine from the Côte de Beaune. His fruit is sourced from growers he knows well and in whom he has total confidence. All of his wines originate from vineyards with vines of a minimum of 35 years of age. Some of his growers are certified organic; some are organic in ethos, but work without certification. All though are highly dedicated to quality. Pascal’s partnership with his long-time friend Moray Tawse marks a commitment to crafting wines that are amongst the finest expression of Burgundy’s most celebrated terroirs.
