sylvain-pataille-bourgogne-aligote-marsannayIt is in the "small" appellations like Marsannay that we find this ancestral solidarity between winemakers who allowed Sylvain Pataille, oenologist-consultant recognized for his talent as winemaker throughout the Côte du Nuits (notably at the Château de la Tour, In Clos Vougeot) to settle down ...

Indeed, the story of Sylvain Pataille, rising star of the Côte de Nuits, shows that in Marsannay-la-Côte, we know how to stick ones elbows between neighbors. At a time when land is increasingly scarce and expensive in Burgundy, Sylvain Pataille has managed to realize his dream. From a single hectare (rented!) In 1999, its domain has grown to two hectares in 2000 and four hectares in 2001. 2002 saw a big evolution with the passage to ten hectares and especially the arrival of beautiful plots . Today he is the proud owner of 14 hectares of vines, on the same land that saw him born 35 years ago.

Real hard work, Sylvain Pataille takes care of his vines with an unusual ardor. He says it himself: a similar evolution in a few years, "it uses a man". But his hard work paid off. Today, Sylvain Pataille produces some of the best wines of the Marsannay appellation. Since the arrival of his brother in the exploitation, and thanks to the intervention of competent assistants, Pataille was able in 2008 to certify his domain in bio and to try out Biodynamics because he has, according to him A level of reactivity and control sufficient to launch.

He speaks of breeding as a "continuity of the vine". He does not like to "rush the vegetal", and defines himself as a conductor more than a musician, even if he modestly adds that he says it "to make the fool". "It is not you who must guide what is already programmed, it is the climate, it is the year, it is the plant, we must only try to express what comes out of it. Magic fruit, a fruit capable of mimicry, to reproduce all the aromas that surround it. [...] I do not like to change the vintage. "

It is perhaps this minimalist intervention, this respect of the vine and its original characteristics that push the RVF of the Best Wines of France to say of these wines that "the range is still not very homogeneous, but the wines Are elaborated with heart and a great technicality "...
