Long Live Marc Pichon 1963-2016


With tears in my eyes, I must share with you all some very sad news.

We lost a loving brother, an eccentric, loyal and devoted family member last night Sept. 10, 2016.
He was phenomenally chaotic, brilliant, honest, dutiful and legendary in his generosity. Marc brought light to the core of T Edward.

Our history is filled with indelible Pichon moments, we’ll miss you. RIP Marc Pichon.

Team TEW Rides the South of France

T. Edward Wines, New York wine importer/distributor, Organic wine importer, La Provencal Sainte Victoire

On Sunday, a few of us rode La Provençale Sainte-Victoire, a 95KM ride in Provence. A stunning course that included three pretty serious climbs (totaling 4,130 feet), and some harrowing descents, it was the most beautiful 95K that I have ever ridden, scented with lilacs, lavender and shrub Provencal herbs. And while my training had been pretty threadbare, I dug the paced commitment required to reach the top of Sainte Victoire, Côte de Bèdes and Col du Sambuc (a 6.5 mile climb). The guys fared a bit faster, pace-lining with some winter training to their legs. But we all loved riding in France, where cycling is a revered spectator sport.  Read more

“Sauvage” from Marc Pichon

Marc Pichon of Anne Pichon

Walking past barrels in the cellar of Anne Pichon‘s Domaine de Murmurium, Marc Pichon squeezes through a sliver between the wall and racks of wine, and motions for us to follow. The ceiling is low and the space is tight, a true lemon-squeezer, but we are on his heels and surprised find ourselves in a partially excavated cellar.  Eager to view the property’s soil profile of limestone with sand and stone, we didn’t expect to find it in Pichon’s cellar where it could, at any moment, topple upon our heads, but that is the nature of Pichon, a true “Sauvage” of a winemaker from Côte de Ventoux.

Stages 13-15 & TEW Takes Mt. Ventoux

Anne Pichon & Voeckler in the Leader’s Jersey

From Pau to Lourdes, Stage 13 circled a part of the Pyrenees in the southwest of France, and ended with a 16.4km hors categorie ascent up col d’ Aubisque. Originally created to classify mountain roads that cars could not expect to pass, the hors categorie climb still separates the climbers and the GC contenders from the rest of the peloton.
