An elegant, very floral nose, with notes of violets and acacia... Palate: this is well-balanced juice, original and very agreable.
Sylvain Pataille, a fortysomething vigneron in Marsannay, is undoubtedly one of the most exciting revelations of this area in recent times. He’s no recent arrival, though, he just knew how to be patient, start small, and grow: from 1 hectare in 1999, the estate now has 17... The estate was certified organic in 2008, but Pataille lost his certification in 2016, to his great chagrin, following a desperate vine treatment to save his harvest in the face of nature’s fury. Certified or not, the quality of the wines produced is superb, his approach is increasingly precise, the work he does with his Aligoté vines simply spectacular! With his funky haircut, his purple labels and his extremely reasonable prices – in the land of unreasonable prices! – Sylvain is today indispensable in our cellars. We love his healthy, sound approach to wine, characterised by his impressive work ethic, minimal sulphur, and long, perfectly mastered barrel ageing.
A nose of red fruit aromas – redcurrant, sour cherry – with subtle mineral notes... A lively palate, brilliant, complex, with surprising depth of fruit. A rare rosé that you could easily forget in your cellar and enjoy in six or seven years!
A nose of red fruits, with blackcurrant and toasted notes... Palate: elegant, powerful, precise and silky.
An elegant nose, with notes of Amarena cherries, fruits in brandy, sweet spices... Palate: a faultless wine, marrying refreshing fruit and velvety tannins, to create a beautifully harmonious wine.
