PASCAL MARCHAND 2010 BOURGOGNE "AVALON"

Avalon: the mythical island out of Welsh folklore and Arthurian legend you can go to only after being initiated. You have to be able to call the bark to take you there. A place where the apples and the grapes are growing by themselves and where the soil does not need to be ploughed. A place where the Sages go to retire. This unusual Burgundy Pinot Noir is a blend of wines from several different appellations and vineyards all of which are more than 35 years old.(Côte de Nuits-Village, Savigny-lés-Beaune, Pernand Vergelesses and Chorey les Beaune.) The ‘cuvées’ for this blend have been very carefully selected; firstly from winemakers that Pascal has known for a long time and whose wines he likes and secondly with reference to the site of the vineyards and the age of the vines. The wines are chosen, aged and blended to produce a pure expression of Pinot Noir in relation to the vintage. Once blended, ‘Avalon’ is aged in barrels but without any new wood. Bottling after 24 months of aging. All the aging operations are carried out according to the lunar calendar.
