THE VINTAGE :

 

There were big frosts around April 7: down to minus 8 degrees. The vines finally recovered but there was a big hail on June 21, which destroyed all hopes in 15 minutes. And the heavy rain in September put a lot of pressure on disease control. 2021 is the year when everything was fierce.

In this region, "the yields are historically low", estimates François Labet, president of BIVB. “ We have generally between 30 and 50% losses but there are big differences, with 70 and 80% losses for the whites of the Côte de Beaune and 50% in the Chablis and the Mâconnais ".

With the spring frost of 2021 wiping out much of that vintage, “The Côtes de Beaune was hit worse than the Côtes de Nuits,” Laurent Delaunay president of BIVB says. “Production of regional wines will suffer the most, and a lot of people won’t be able to fulfill their contracts. And 2021 will not be a good year for production of entry-level wines,” which has long been a BIVB objective to bring new wine lovers into the fold.

 

THE STORY :

 

The story of the Maison Marchand-Tawse in Burgundy begins with the extraordinary story of Pascal Marchand who in 1985 at 22 years old, took the reins of the Clos des

Epeneaux in Pommard. Pascal Marchand arrived in Burgundy in 1983 and went solo in 2006, having established his reputation at top domaines such as Bruno Clair and

Comte Armand. In partnership with fellow Canadian Murray Tawse, they now combine an expanding range of domaine-owned vineyards with their micro-negociant arm

Marchand-Tawse”. Many top terroirs are represented here, but sadly in tiny volumes
