Domaine Sylvain Pataille Marsannay Les Longeroies 2017
Why we love it
If you are a red Burgundy lover looking to pair something with red meat — but are faced with the misconception that the Pinot Noirs of the region might be too light, you’ll want to try the wines from Marsannay. Marsannay is located in Côte de Nuits, the only place in Burgundy where all three colours of wines can be crafted — red, white and rosé. The reds, made from 100 percent Pinot Noir, offer a signature result of intense colouration, a bouquet of red fruits (Cherry and Raspberry), a meaty texture and a touch of spices. Some consider this the perfect Burgundy for red meat dishes.
This is a great representation to show how Burgundian Pinot Noir can also be approachable when young, and expressively aromatic and structured — awesome to consume after resting in the cellar for a couple years.
