*1R* 2015 Domaine Sylvain Pataille, Marsannay La Montagne

$63.00 750ml

This was a very special wine, and not just because it was beautifully layered with ripe fruits like red plum, black cherry, nectarine, and pink grapefruit, in perfect harmony with smoke, dark soil, and cinnamon, all wrapped in lively acidity, and delicate tannins–although, it had all that. What this wine packed was something that can’t be simply smelled or tasted, but is part of the entire experience of what great Burgundy delivers. The energy and vibrancy that the dense, fleshy fruit exuded on the palate was striking. That intrinsic electricity combined with its purity and refined texture creates a weightless power that truly elevates this wine beyond its Village level. Magical!

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.
