This Marsannay Villages comes from five parcels including Les Larreys, Clos du Roy and En Blungey, as well as fruit from newly planted vines in Couchée. The oldest vines in the cuvée date from 1949. It’s fermented and aged for 18 months in 600-litre barrels, and Pataille uses a little new oak.

Other Reviews....
Here the nose is markedly reduced, even slightly skunky and needs to be racked. By contrast there is good freshness and energy to the succulent and relatively energetic flavors that possess an attractive texture though the reduction shows up on the finish. Note that my projected range assumes that this will clean up appropriately. Drink from 2023+.

The 2019 Marsannay Blanc is a blend of several parcels. This showed quite a heavy reduction on the nose when I tasted it from barrel. The palate is quite fat and juicy, good weight and an attractive waxy texture, but I feel it will need 18-24 months in bottle to get going. Drink 2023-2032.
