Always seductive and dense, and are always equipped with powerful body and energy with incredible purity of fruits and depth, Sylvain Cathiard's wines are a great addition to any wine lover's cellar and would be impressive at any dinner.
The Domaine was established in the 1930s by Sylvain Cathiard's grandfather who had worked with Domaine de la Romanee Conti and Lamarche and had bought some vineyards in Burgundy, and was originally named "Cathiard-Molenier". They initially sold off the fruits to negociants, and it was Sylvain's father Andre who started bottling some of the grapes himself. Sylvain had worked with his father for 15 years before he rented some of the vineyards from him and subsequently given ownership when his father retired in 1995, it was then that Cathiard-Molenier was rebranded to "Sylvain Cathiard" as we all know today. Sylvain's son had been working with him since the late 2000s and has been fully in charge since the 2011 vintage.
The Domaine has an impressive array of vineyards in and around Vosne-Romanee, including 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts and Romanee-St-Vivant, and their vines are at least 40 years old. The fruits are completely destemmed after rigorous sorting, and following Sebastien’s belief that less new wood would create more terroir-driven wines, the use of new oak in all wines is being reduced gradually except for Romanee-St-Vivant which 100% new wood is still being employed. Viticulture is not yet organic, but Sebastien works the soil and does not use herbicides or pesticides. Their wines always show great youthfulness, energy and purity of fruits along the whole range, and are consistently offering quality wines over the years.
While Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru and Romanee-St-Vivant may be their flagship wines, Vosne-Romanee Aux Reignots 1er Cru is also another wine that you should not miss. The vineyard is just above La Romanee Grand Cru and is one of the more excellently priced wines.
