This small domaine comprised of under 14 acres is run by winemaker Sebastien Cathiard, son of Sylvain Cathiard, doing both the vineyard work and vinification. Cathiard and his wife continue to advise their son when needed. The original family domaine was established by Sylvain's grandfather in the 1930s and then maintained by Sylvain's father from 1969 until 1985, when Sylvain became involved. The following year, Sylvain set up his own domaine with parcels of vines rented from his father and other vignerons, before taking on his father's original vineyards. Based in Vosne, his vineyards span Vosne-Romanee, Nuits-St.-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, and a tiny parcel in Romanee-St.-Vivant. All of the vineyard work is done meticulously by hand by the family, and they follow a hands-off, non-interventionist approach to winemaking. The grapes are 100% de-stemmed and the premier crus see 40-75% new oak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Vosne-Romanée Village has a gentle lilting crushed strawberry and Morello-scented bouquet that wafts from the glass, neatly carrying the 50% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sharp tannin on the entry, crisp malic acidity with a pointed tart cherry finish. This is a fine introduction to the delights of this domaine's wines.
