Terry Jeans rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely, well-balanced Burgundy pinot noir from a partnership between Pascal Marchand and one of my favorite Ontario producers- Tawse. It has some refined notes of ripe cherries that carries through to the palate, with some zippy acidity which makes this a very food friendly wine. If you are looking for a premium burgundy pinot for a reasonable price, this is a good choice. Can be paired with a variety of dishes from grilled trout to jerk chicken.

Natalie's Review

Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2011, Burgundy A.C., France: A delightful, medium-bodied satin-smooth pinot noir that's produced by a partnership between one of Niagara's best wineries, Tawse, and this Burgundian domaine. Lovely tart cherry notes throughout, great mouth-watering acidity for food and a long finish. The grapes are grown mostly in Pommard vineyards, with some coming from the Marsannay district of Burgundy. This is a terrific price for Old World pinot noir. Very mouth-watering with great acidity for a wide range of dishes from planked salmon to roast chicken. Drink: 2014-2019. 285601 13% XD 750 mL  $27.95 Score: 91/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
