About Sylvain Pataille &
Déjà Bu wines
Sylvain is one of the most renowned vignerons of Marsannay-La-Côte, part of the talented young crowd engaged in resetting the region’s attitude and direction. Déjà Bu wines of Bristol joined forces with Sylvain to offer something new and fresh. From a new generation of Burgundy winemakers, these are wines for a new generation of Burgundy wine drinkers: those of us looking for real, unstuffy, terroir-driven wines we can afford.
Initial pithiness and racy acidity give way to more generous notes of apricot, fig, tarte tatin, candied lemon, pear and honeysuckle. As the wine opens further, there’s herb and sweet spice - nutmeg, tarragon, fennel seed. It finishes long with an appetising almondy salinity.
