Sylvain Pataille - Bourgogne Aligoté 2019
Sylvain Pataille is a highly talented winemaker from Marsannay in Bourgogne who is credited as one of the people who has put the Aligoté grape variety back on the map. A grape that has long been seen as only capable of making simple housewines is slowly getting recognition as a grape variety with potential.
Sylvain is one of the founders of Les Aligoteurs, a group of top producers that have come together to promote Aligoté. This wine has been properly barrel aged, the yields from the biodynamic vineyards have been significantly lowered and in the cellar Sylvain always works with spontaneous fermentation, light filtering and low sulphur use.
