Domaine Sylvain Pataille Blanc Les Mechalot Bourgogne Chardonnay Burgundy France, 2018, 750

 

  • Size: 0.30 ha (0.74 ac)
  • Variety: Chardonnay
  • Vine Age: Planted in 2010
  • Terroir: In Marsannay, bottom of slope, deeper alluvial soils
  • Viticulture: Certified organic, biodynamic methods
  • Vinification: Direct pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation. Aged for 12-18 months in older oak barrels.

Sylvain has at least two parcels on opposite ends of the vineyard. The vines here are old, the youngest being planted in 1949, and consist of Chardonnay, Aligoté, and Pinot Noir for Rosé. Sylvain notes the characteristic reductive minerality despite the change in location, grape, and bedrock. He believes this minerality is so beautiful that it would be a shame to make red wine on this terroir.
