Sylvain Pataille 2018 Marsannay RougeRegular price £35.95
The energetic Sylvain Pataille makes many fascinating wines from biodynamically-farmed vines in and around Marsannay. His village red is an immediately appealing, cherry and violet-scented wine, with lovely softness and finely-judged balance.
Perfect level of whole bunch giving a herbal freshness but not detracting from the dark-red and lively fruit. There’s fruit sweetness at the core, a generosity and a broad-fruited smooth texture. Perfectly balanced between fruit and structure. Long too. Lovely red-cherry scent start to finish. Likely to be good value.
