Domaine Tawse

This is the domaine that used to be called Domaine Maume but is now guided in a brighter and purer and altogether more exciting direction by winemaker Mark Fincham. We are delighted by the various terroir-specific Gevrey-Chambertin we have selected including a sappy Etelois located near Griottes, and an old-vine Pallud, and especially impressed by the domaine’s fine grand cru Mazis-Chambertin.

“I was very impressed by the quality of these wines: very intense, detailed and unapologetically very terroir specific…this is principled and thoughtful winemaking creating wonderful wine.” Neal Martin
