Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Elegant nose of hand-picked black cherries, and subtle influences of wild orchard flowers. Delightful on the palate with flavors of cranberry, blackberry, intertwined with a rich earthiness. Heaven in a glass. Really enjoyed this one!
Malcolm Lamont rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A real cut above your average AOC Bourgogne.

Captivating Crimson colour. An even more alluring nose, with cherry, earth, strawberry flavours, as well as a characteristic I describe as ethereal.

Silky texture on the palate, voluptuous.
An excellent value at $27.95

Matt Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright light ruby red colour, tart cherry and strawberry, with grilled herbs on the nose and palate. Enjoy with smoked salmon, summer salads with goat cheese and grilled strawberries. Tasted January 2017. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.mattswinepicks.com

Natalie's Review

Marchand-Tawse Pinot Noir 2014, Burgundy A.C., France: A very seductive nose of black cherry and violets. Smooth, supple and almost full-bodied with great richness on the palate. Aromas of sour cherry, cranberry and wild tart blackberry. Good acidity for smoked salmon or grilled chicken. Produced by a joint venture between Moray Tawse, of Niagara's Tawse winery, and Burgundian winemaker Pascal Marchand. The Pinot Noir vines were planted in 1978 in the clay and limestone soils of Pommard, one of Burgundy's most respected communes. Drink: 2016-2020. 285601 12.50% XD 750 mL  $30.95 Score: 94/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
