100% Pinot Noir from a superb parcel, Les Longeroies, with a limestone bedrock, brown rocks on the surface, and 15-60-year-old vines. A parcel that is still in the running to be reclassified as a premier cru. Vinification: 80% whole bunches, 20% destemmed, 3 weeks in vats, zero additives. Matured 18 months in 3-10 year-old barrels, blended then matured an additional month in vats, with a light filtration at the end. 1 gram of sulphur added at bottling.
Sylvain Pataille, a fortysomething vigneron in Marsannay, is undoubtedly one of the most exciting revelations of this area in recent times.

The estate was certified organic in 2008, but Pataille lost his certification in 2016, to his great chagrin,...All wines
