Domaine Sylvain Pataille Marsannay 'Clos du Roy' 2019
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir.
Taste: The nose is met with a generous bouquet of ripe red fruit. The fresh, vibrant palate is medium bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a precise finish straight down the middle of the palate. Perfectly suited for ageing.
Sylvain Pataille is one of the new breed of winemakers who first achieved the highest level of technical training before beginning to craft his own wines. A highly-regarded consulting oenologist, who still advises over 15 Burgundy domaines, Pataille has in very short order built up a domaine of some 15 hectares, all in Marsannay, the northernmost and most recent (1987) AOC of the Côte de Nuits. Domaine Pataille is farmed organically — in transition to completely biodynamic wine production. Accordingly, there are no chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers; and only natural yeasts, no enzymes, are used. The fermentation, partially in fiberglass and partially in stainless steel, is relatively short — usually only 10-12 days — with temperatures held to a maximum of around 32°C. The wines are then racked into oak and then aged for up to 24 months before bottling.
