Domaine Maume Tawse

Maume produce round and appealing wines of high quality and offer them at reasonable prices. Perhaps the reason why they offer such exceptional value for money is because of their size. The domaine has only 5 hectares and so is easily overlooked and has not achieved the exposure it deserves. It has a sprinkling of excellent vineyards at all quality levels including grands crus Mazis-Chambertin and Mazoyères-Chambertin, premiers crus Lavaux-St.Jacques and Champeaux, and at village level two lovely lieux-dits, named sites, Pallud and Etelois.

The Canadian Moray Tawse bought Domaine Maume in 2013, installing Pascal Marchand as manager though Bertrand Maume is still advising.

As ever, what sets them apart is the quality of work in the vineyard, and the significant age of the vineyards, which produces concentrated and healthy grapes. In the cellar, they mature their wines for a relatively long period, 18-20 months in barrel, producing a soft and rich-tasting style of Gevrey.
