KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll Q. @pasmarchand Pascal, tell us about your philosophy on organic #winemaking. #SommChat

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @keepercoll #sommchat Low intervention, use the lunar calendar any winery operations like punch downs pressing barreling wracking bottling

Vintage Mattituck ‏@VintMatt RT @keepercoll: Q. @pasmarchand Pascal, tell us about your approach to the ageing process. #SommChat new oak % larger barrels?

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @VintMatt @keepercoll #sommchat It depends on the wines. Regionals, no new oak, Villages 30%, 1er Cru 50%, Grands Crus 100%.

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll Q. @pasmarchand Pascal, tell us about your approach to the ageing process. #SommChat

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @keepercoll #sommchat I age the wines long prior to bottling, more stability and polishing. 20 to 24 months is usual. Unfined, unfiltered

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll Q. @pasmarchand Pascal, what are some changes U have seen in #winemaking since U arrived in #Burgundy in '80s? #SommChat

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @keepercoll #sommchat The main change is that we are looking for much less extraction with less punch downs and pump overs.

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @keepercoll #sommchat The vinification is perceived much more as an infusion like you make a tea. to be expressed, the terroir doesn't need...

Pascal Marchand ‏@pasmarchand @keepercoll #sommchat be forced out of the skins
