Sylvain Pataille Marsannay Rouge


Country: France

Region: Burgundy

Grapes: Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2021

Born and bred in Marsannay, but not from a winemaking family, Sylvain had to start from scratch when he wanted a domaine of his own. He went to wine school in Beaune at the age of just 14 and then to wine university in Bordeaux in order to become a winemaker. 

His Marsannay Rouge is from 3 hectares of 50 year old vines aged in a mix of 2 to 10 year old barrels plus several old demi-muids. A sumptuous wine with dark berry and smoky bonfire notes at first, moderate acidity and a meaty, savoury quality infusing the red fruit on the ample finish.
