Domaine Sylvain Pataille - Bourgogne Blanc 'Les Méchalots' 2018


Sylvain Pataille is one of the new breed of winemakers.  A highly-regarded consulting oenologist, who still advises over 15 Burgundy domaines, Pataille has in very short order built up a domaine of some 15 hectares, all in Marsannay, the northernmost, and most recent (1987) AOC of the Côte de Nuits.

Sylvain has been organically certified since 2008, and has been employing biodynamics in the vineyards and cellar for over a decade. 

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Touches of menthol and wood surround the almost as spicy aromas of green apple and lemon rind. There is at once good mid-palate fat and good energy suffusing the delicious and well-delineated middle weight flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and delicious finale. This isn't elegant; indeed it flirts with rusticity, but I like the depth and sneaky good length. This too is worth considering. *Burghound Outstanding!".
