Domaine SYLVAIN CATHIARD
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.
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 mold beginning to grow on the walls. A healthy cave should have mold!), 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.
| Coteaux Bourguignons Les Croix Blanches [Read More]|
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.
| Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Aux Chaumes [Read More]|
From 35–40-year-old vines on the plateau above Nuits-St-Georges. The soil is mainly clay. 25% new oak.
| Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Les Dames Huguette [Read More]|
30–70-year-old vines in lots of different small parcels. Just below the Antenna above Nuits-St-George, for those who have been. On the slope, at about 350ms, thin soil over limestone.
| Bourgogne Rouge [Read More]|
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.
| Gevrey Chambertin [Read More]|
Mostly from Champ Franc below the D974. 40-year-old vines.
| Nuits-St-Georges [Read More]|
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.
| Chambolle Musigny Clos de L’Orme [Read More]|
Most of the vines here were planted in the 1930s. Always cool and pure with serene dark red fruit and a fine, stylish structure.
|Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Thoreys|
| Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Murgers [Read More]|
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.
|Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Orveaux|
| Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Reignots [Read More]|
The domaine’s youngest vines, planted in 1987. Often seems a little lighter, sinewy, but shows Cathiard’s distinctive purity and intensity beautifully.
| Vosne Romanée 1er Malconsorts [Read More]|
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.
