Since 2008, this vineyard has been cultivated according to biodynamic guidelines, with the final conversion taking place with the 2011 harvest. This Wiener Gemischter Satz consists of 9 grape varieties - Weissburgunder, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Sylvaner, Zierfandler, Rotgipfler, Traminer and Riesling - which were picked by hand and processed together following the careful elimination of any botrytised grapes. Gentle pressing with a pneumatic winepress followed a 4-hour maceration period. Fermentation took place to about 75% in cooled steel tanks and another 25% in large old oak barrels. After maturing the wine for 10 months on the fine lees, the different tanks and barrels were put together and the wine was bottled in September 2017
The wine exudes very complex aromas of citrus fruit, yellow blossoms, pineapples and sweet herbs plus multi-layered tones of spicy and minerally fruit. The palate is lively with beautiful acidity, plenty of power and presence as well as good length.
Grapes grown from some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino
Classic Provence rosé, expressive and aromatic, blending fresh cherries and floral notes alongside more exotic fruits then finishing with a soft round palate packed with peach and raspberry.
I have just tasted the very first bottle of 2020 Whispering Angel Rose and it is sensational. The haunting canteloupe-tinged aroma, silky texture and bracingly dry finish mark this as a stunning balanced vintage. Chapeau! - Matthew Jukes
Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of woodsmoke and brown spice. A full, firm and ripe red with rich, powerful flavours. All balanced by ripe tannins, complex savoury notes and a long finish.
The name of this unusual Bourgogne Pinot Noir refers to the latitude of Burgundy, and it is a blend of out best Bourgogne Rouge, Cote de Nuits Village, Marsannay and Vosne-Romanee.Maison Marchand-Tawse
