Good To Know: Relatively young in terms of fellow Burgundian Wineries, Sylvain Pataille has established itself through its focus on purity of fruit and terroir, minimal intervention during production and as one of the leading, certified organic vineyards in the Marsannay-la-Côte region in the north of the Côte d'Or.

Sylvain Pataille's Marsannay L'Ancestrale 2018 showcases the amazing intensity and complexity of 60 - 80 year old Pinot Noir vines with this vintage. Bottled without filtration or fining makes for a uniquely meaty and rustic Pinot that presents an intense nose of cranberry compote, forest floor and wild mushrooms. The wine's full bodied palate brings notes of black cherries, baking spice and nuances of white pepper and cacao to the fore. The finish is long and round but still quite elegant with a gorgeous mineral edge; dusted with sinewy and ripe tannins.

Established in 1999, winemaker Sylvain Pataille started with just one hectare of vines while still working full time in a laboratory located in Beaune. He decided to go all out on his own venture in 2001 and his success has led to now owning a total of 15 hectares of vineyards within or just outside the boundary of Marsannay, all of which are certified organic. Pataille's use of natural yeasts for fermentation, and minimal doses of sulphur added only during bottling has developed quite the following amongst wine critics and fellow winemakers. Also good to note about Pataille's wines is that his white wines are filtered but not fined and his red wines are bottled without fining or filtration; creating a very unique profile and purity to his style.
