Domaine Sylvain Pataille

Sylvain Pataille is an exciting young grower in Marsannay. He trained as an oenologist in Bordeaux, and still consults to 15 or so domaines in Burgundy. His family had 4ha of vines in 1905, but lost them during difficult financial times. He began in 2001 with 4ha and now has 14ha mainly en fermage, on 25 year rental agreements, which are undergoing conversion to biodynamic cultivation. He makes white from aligoté and a selection of chardonnay rosé, whose skin turns pink when ripe, as well as rosé and red. He aims for very low yields in the reds of 35hl/ha.

Aroma is at first subtle but becomes more intense as it opens, without a specific fruit I can describe. Lightly herbal and spicy. With an oily minerality. More herbal and cedary on the palate, with a citrus foundation. Likely to age well, with a slight grip to the texture suggesting it will be a great food wine. Long finish.
