Sylvain Cathiard’s grandfather, a foundling from Savoie, came to Burgundy and found work with Domaine de la Romanée Conti (DRC) and Lamarche, subsequently buying a few parcels of vineyards for himself. His son André Cathiard began to bottle some of the crop.
In due course Sylvain began work with his father but then separated to start his own small domaine, until on his father’s retirement in 1995, Sylvain could take back the family vineyards on a renting agreement. He has now been joined by his son Sébastien.
The Cathiards have 5.5 hectares of vineyards in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, including tiny holdings in Clos de Vougeot and Romanée-St-Vivant. A recent addition (from 2006) to the range is the Nuits-St-Georges Aux Thorey.

Tasting Notes

87-89 Points Allen Meadows
(from a parcel of vines in Flagey opposite the Clos de Vougeot). Here the expressive nose is derived more from the red side of the fruit spectrum with additional floral and earth nuances where the latter can also be found on the equally agreeably textured and slightly denser flavors that possess even better depth and length. This is a terrific Bourgogne and worth you interest.
