Sylvain Pataille is recognized today as one of the elite growers in the Cote d’Or - specifically, in northern Cote de Nuits, in the village of Marsannay. Shockingly, Sylvain doesn’t come from a long line of winemakers but decided from a young age that his dream was to be a vigneron. At 14, he went to wine school in Beaune, and then to university in Bordeaux, to become an oenologist. By 1999, he was able to save up enough cash from his wine sales job to purchase a mere one hectare to start his winemaking dream.
Today, Domaine Sylvain Pataille has grown to 15 hectares, and Sylvain has made a name for himself making world-class red, white, and rose wines. He is best known for leading the charge on Burgundy’s underdogs: Aligote and Bourgogne Rouge.
While Chardonnay is the white wine superstar of Burgundy, Aligote is Burgundy’s other white varietal that often represents a delicious value, and Domaine Sylvain Pataille is among the best! It wouldn't be enough to make great whites alone - his reds are amongst the finest values in the world of fine wine today. His Bourgogne Rouge Le Chapitre Marsannay Clos du Roy are consistently some of our favorite wines year in and year out.
William Kelley of the Wine Advocate stated, “Sylvain Pataille produces brilliant wines that number among the Côte d’Or’s finest values.” We 100% agree and recommend these wines to any Burgundy connoisseur who enjoys wines with balance, seamless texture, and vibrant fruit.
Pre Arrival refers to items that we have purchased, but are not yet on the way to our warehouse. Pre Arrival items are generally 7-14 weeks out.
In order to offer you the best value, we consolidate shipments from Europe (or elsewhere), constantly balancing timing and cost. We always do our best to offer accurate arrival estimates and to keep you informed throughout the process, but we are not able to offer guaranteed arrival dates on In Transit or Pre Arrival items. For questions regarding specific In Transit or Pre Arrival items, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please note: confirmed order requests for In Transit and Pre Arrival items are final sale and therefore not cancellable.
In Transit refers to items that are en route (via air, sea or land) to our warehouse and generally expected to arrive in 3-7 weeks.

To calculate the cost of shipping, add products to your cart and use the shipping calculator.
In Stock orders going out via Local Same Day placed before 2pm (pst) on business days will go out the same day. Weather permitting, In Stock orders going out via FedEx, Climate Controlled Ground and Temperature Controlled typically ship within 1-2 business days unless requested otherwise. We always do what we can to make sure your order won’t spend the weekend in a non-temperature controlled logistics hub and in order to facilitate this, we may hold your order for shipment the following week unless you tell us not to.
We do not fulfill partial orders by default, so if your order contains a combination of In Stock and In Transit/Pre Arrival items, we'll automatically hold the In Stock items until everything is ready. If you wish to receive your In Stock items in advance of your In Transit and/or Pre Arrival items, we do ask that you place two separate orders. If you forget to place two separate orders, but still want to receive your In Stock items first, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of it for you.
Transit time always depends on what delivery method* you select and where your order is going, but here’s a quick cheat sheet:
