Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from September 21 2022

Wine: 2019 Marsannay "Les Grasses TĂȘtes"

Producer: Domaine Sylvain Pataille

Comment: A super-floral nose displays a hint of green tea on the discreetly spicy aromas of essence of various red berries along with a hint of cool earth. The round, delicious and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess a certain taut muscularity that adds a touch of firmness to the clean, dry and well-balanced finale that exhibits sneaky good length. This is very good and if you can find it, don't hesitate.

Score: 90-93 Drink: 2026+
