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 2018 Vosne-Romanée is showing beautifully, soaring from the glass with a deep bouquet of wild berries, plums and cherries mingled with sweet spices, woodsmoke, grilled squab and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with fine concentration, lively acids and an expansive finish.

VinousThe 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village, raised in around 25% new oak, has a very intense bouquet of black cherries and light iodine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit tinged with graphite, leading to a precise finish that does not outstay its welcome. Very fine, but it will require three or four years in bottle.
