The Marsannay les Grasses Tetes, comes from degenerated 50-year-old vines and contains 100% whole bunch fruit. It is more backward than the Marsannay les Longeroies and the fruit veers more towards black than red, with subtle woodland and mulch-like scents just "simmering" underneath. The palate is gentle and rounded on the entry. There is great depth here, wonderful balance and impressive
structure towards the masculine, tobacco-tinged finish. This might be the standout wine from Sylvain Pataille this year. 93 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER

There is a slightly exotic character to the orange pekoe tea-infused aromas of red currant, dark cherry and discreet wisps of earth and game. The medium weight and subtly stony flavors are on the refined side compared to what is typical for Grasses Têtes while displaying focused power on the impressively well-balanced and persistent finish. This is really very good though at least moderate patience is advised. 92 POINTS, BURGHOUND
