Côte de Nuits

Domaine SYLVAIN CATHIARD

Vosne-Romanée

Sebastien Cathiard now runs this Domaine, having taken over from his father Sylvain in 2011. He has built on Sylvain’s already stellar reputation and Domaine Cathiard is now counted amongst the finest domaines in Burgundy.

Background

Since 2011, Sylvain’s son, Sebastian, now runs the Domaine.  He has built on his father’s work and taken the domaine’s reputation to the very highest level; the wines are increasingly hard to buy on release. Sebastian has built a new cellar and winery (the last time I was there he proudly showed us the mould beginning to grow on the walls. A healthy cave should have mould!), he has reduced the percentage of new oak, and as ever is utterly dedicated to harvesting the finest quality grapes from his four-hectare Domaine. Don’t overlook the Nuits wines, they are very fine.

We hold the largest range of back vintages of any UK stockist, from Sebastien’s Bourgogne Rouge, three villages wines, and all his Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanée and Nuits. For the full list, please apply. The wines listed below are in reasonable supply, but purchases will be limited.

Current Vintages

Red WinesVintage
A new wine from Cathiard, produced from 38-year-old vines planted between Nuits-St-George and Vosne. Pinot Noir and Gamay co-planted at around 70/30. Shows a Vosne character in its spicy dark fruit whilst retaining the freshness and crunch of Gamay.
2016
From vines planted in 1987 on a site below the village. No new oak. Always one of the finest Bourgogne Rouge and a serious wine in its own right.
2011
From 80-year-old vines growing in the Lieu-Dit Aux Athées. Adds a little NSG structure to Sébastien’s style of purity and finesse. A superb old vines village cuvee and a much underrated wine in the Cathiard line-up.
2014
Vosne Romanée2011
Most of the vines here were planted in the 1930s. Always cool and pure with serene dark red fruit and a fine, stylish structure.
2014
Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Thoreys2013
One of the finest sites in Nuits’ northern sector, right up against the Vosne border. 65-year-old vines produce a deep, stylish NSG that marries the commune’s distinct characters brilliantly.
2014
The domaine’s youngest vines, planted in 1987. Often seems a little lighter, sinewy, but shows Cathiard’s distinctive purity and intensity beautifully.
2013
One of Burgundy’s most hallowed 1er Crus, sitting next to La Tâche. There is no finer proponent than Domaine Cathiard. Sebastien’s Malconsorts is a rich, powerful wine. The vineyard’s deep red soil over complex limestone gives a wine which seems to hit all the senses, at once flooding yet heightening them. With age its multifaceted complexity can be breath taking and worthy of a Grand Cru. Probably the wine most synonymous with the Domaine and a worthy standard bearer indeed.
