Marchand Tawse, Pinot Noir, Cotes de Nuits, Burgundy 2017
The vineyards used are spread over different areas: South of the Côte de Nuits: In Corgoloin, "Au Clou", "Les Perrières", "Les Monts de Boncourt" and "Les Retraits". The hill-slope of Corgoloin are carved into the hard limestones of the upper bathonien. The slopes are gentle and regular, not reaching the rim of the plateau. In the upper part the brown soil is only slightly limy, lower down, a thick layer of pebbly scree, while at the foot of the slope it is an extensive area of brown soils over accumulated alluvium.
30% whole bunch and 15% new oak barrels used.
No fining, no filtration and all of the vinification and ageing operations are carried out with reference to the lunar calendar.
