DOMAINE PATAILLE SYLVAIN
2009 PATAILLE SYLVAIN BOURGOGNE CHAPITRE BLANC
Finding really good quality Burgundy at affordable prices is never easy, and in the highly-acclaimed 2009 vintage is more difficult than ever. But one taste of Sylvain Pataille’s basic Bourgogne Blanc (Chardonnay), and you will be wowed! These wines are sensational!. Sylvain Pataille owns and runs his small domaine in the little known commune of Marsannay just south of Gevrey Chambertin in the Cotes de Nuits. He is an obsessive biodynamic farmer, like many of his more illustrious colleagues in Burgundy – Domaine Leflaive, Domaine Leroy, Domaine de la Romanée Conti – and is convinced that this method of viticulture brings more minerality, vitality, intensity and above all more sense of the individual terroirs which are so vital to Burgundy, into his wines.
There’s plenty of fresh pear on the friendly and forward nose. Soft palate with good fruit. This is a tasty and very honest bourgogne
