2014 Burgundy: Report from the Vineyards -- Day 5

I had fewer visits than normal on Friday, but still very good ones.

Bernard Maume’s children sold Domaine B. Maume to Morey Tawse, the rich Canadian also behind Domaine Marchand-Tawse, a little over three years ago. Mark Fincham is now in charge of the wines, although he says that Bertrand Maume still offers some advice. The estate has been converted to organic and biodynamic operation and has applied for certification (which will take some time). The wines here were extremely good, although quite different in style from those made under the Maume regime. They are more elegant and pure and generally not as wild. Be sure to check my notes on the tasting when they are posted. (Continue reading here.)
