Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MARCHAND-TAWSE
Simply labeled as a “Bourgogne Côte d'Or Pinot Noir” this is a surprisingly classy very well-made Burgundy that offers loads of complexity and flavour. It does not have the elegance and/or finesse of a Pommard or Volnay stylistically, and leans in the direction of a mini Grands-Echezeaux in terms of extract, power and richness. Deep intense purple colour, the nose is extremely intense with firm, fairly ripe, Damson plum, cherry, cassis and pomegranite fruit with faintly smoky, garrigue-tinged notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, extracty, still youthful, faintly roasted, intense, ripe, plum-cassis flavours with a lingering, high acid, cedary finish. Perfect with a rack of lamb and wild game. It has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L1802 on the back label. A REPEAT of the 2018 that was released on November 28, 2020 at $33.95. Assessed from a fresh bottle purchased at the LCBO and needs big Burgundy glass - not my ISO. CSPC 285601

TASTING NOTE: Offering impressive darkness and concentration, this rich and rather ripe pinot noir from the Côte d'Or has the intensity of Pommard but the aromatics of Volnay. A pleasurable dichotomy. Well-structured and deftly crafted with very good length. Score - 92 (Sara d'Amato, winealign.com, Nov. 30, 2020) Price $ 32.95
