LOCATION: Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay. Size, varieties, etc: 14 hectares planted to pinot noir, chardonnay, chardonnay rose, pinot blanc, pinot beurot, pinot gris.
VITICULTURE: organic (not certified). WINEMAKING: though the proportion will vary according to the vintage, Sylvain is firmly in the whole cluster camp. He has also been striving to eliminate the use of sulphur during vinification and aging: for most cuvées in 2013, it was only added in at a low dose during bottling.
Noteworthy: Sylvain started in wine as a consulting enologist and his client roster includes some of the famous domaines in the Côte d’Or. He is considered by his peers to be one of the best and brightest young winemakers in Burgundy.
