As Rajat Parr says in 'A Sommelier's Atlas of Taste': 'Sylvain Pataille is considered quite a superstar winemaker; he also consults for many other properties. He's a great taster (geologist Francoise Vannier told us how he recognized the presence of clay in a wine's subsoils that she didn't think existed, until eight years later a soil pit she dug confirmed his observation). A former lab oenologist, he started his domaine from nothing in 1999 and has built it up into a source of lovely, vibrant wines. His Bourgogne rouge is one of the best in Burgundy.'
Let's leave it at that.
