Old vines in Les Cherbaudes and Les Perrières. Lovely red purple, real generosity to the fruit here, ripe and plump yet with excellent fresh mineral acidity behind. Another impressive wine.

It was fascinating to taste the 2012 range with Bertrand Maume and his colleagues from Marchand-Tawse, who now assist in the winemaking process since Moray Tawse bought the domaine two years ago. There is still the recognisable, characterful Maume style but some of the inconsistencies of the past have been ironed out. There has been a little more pumping-over to aerate the fermenting vats and thus better manage the reductive aspects of old-style Maume winemaking. 2012 is a lovely vintage here.
