2002 Pataille Sylvain, Marsannay L'AncestraleNov. 2004
This cuvée showcases old family vines in a lovely older-style, more flared bottle, similar to those used by Laurent Ponsot. The nose starts with a blast of toasty oak but takes only a minute in the glass to fade into the mix of red and black cherry fruit. Just a trace of astringency to the oak tannins on the palate but still a far from rustic mouthfeel. This wine shows a similar depth of fruit to the previous wine, but with more complexity. A wine that you could enjoy today but will be à point with another 2 or 3 years in the cellar.
