Wine Insight

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 (mostly en fermage) a domaine of some 15 hectares, all in Marsannay, the northernmost, and most recent (1987) AOC of the Côte de Nuits.

Domaine Pataille currently produces 12 cuvées, including not only red, white and rosé Marsannay (Marsannay being the only appellation in the Côte d’Or permitted AC rosé), but also Aligoté, Passetoutgrain and Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge.

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 barriques (1/3 new) and then aged for up to 24 months (18 on average) before bottling.

The tradition of rosé wine in Marsannay dates back 1919, following the war, the idea was to create 'un vin de fête' to revive business. Sylvain’s outstanding rosé is made from 50-90yo Pinot Noir and pinot beurot (the Burgundian strain of pinot gris). The vines are planted in rocky white marls, from limestone-heavy terroirs usually dedicated to white grapes (Charmes aux Prêtres, Champ Forey), helping to confer a texture that is more typical of a white wine. Half comes from a direct press of the grapes and half from a 2-3 days maceration on the skins. Very unusually for a rosé, this benefits from a two years élevage (in older 600 ltr barrels). Savoury nose and then on the palate full of vivid raspberry fruit encased in lovely acidity and minerals with light tannins in evidence. Extremely persistent, suggesting that bottle age will benefit – Sylvain recommends at least two years. For drinking now to 2024.
