Marchand & Burch Wines Results

2010 Marchand & Burch Chardonnay Porongurups 
“Developed green-gold; hand-picked and whole bunch pressed grapes from two of the highest vineyards in
the Porongurup region are wild yeast-fermented in French barriques to produce a wine with utterly exceptional
intensity and length. You can’t put your finger precisely on it, but this shows the Burgundian training of
Pascal Marchand.” 97 Points

2011 Marchand & Burch Chardonnay Porongurups
“Bright straw-green; it has exceptional drive and intensity to the long, lingering palate, fruit flavours in the
nectarine, white peach and grapefruit spectrum; oak has played its part in creating a wine with great
texture and structural complexity, its destiny far in the future.” 96 Points

2011 Marchand & Burch Mount Barrow Pinot Noir Mount Barker
“Has significantly more colour than Gibraltar Rock, the palate following suit; here there is red and black cherry,
plum, spice and fine tannins all contributing to the overall flavour, mouth feel and length of the wine.” 94 Points

2009 Marchand & Burch Shiraz Margaret River
“Strong red-purple; this is all about elegance and balance, the bouquet a fragrant array of spice, plum and
quality oak, the medium- to full-bodied palate creating a web of ripe tannins to sustain and enhance the dark
fruit flavours; it also has exemplary acidity.” 94 Points
