Cathiard is a tiny domain - there never is very much wine. You enter a spick and span white stucco suburban home in the center of the small village of Vosne Romanee. There is a walled vineyard outside the front door. Go down the staircase and you are in a minuscule cuverie and barrel room. Not a lot of barrels here either. No wonder the wine is sold in 6 bottle cases.

Sebastien Cathiard has been slowly assuming control of this top estate in Vosne-Romanée from his father Sylvain. He is now fully in charge, but the wines have been so good for so long that he wisely has changed very little. They continue to farm meticulously, de-stem and rigorously sort all the fruit prior to fermentation. The only thing he has changed is the gradual reduction of new oak, seeking a bit more purity of terroir expression.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 93
"A much more deeply pitched nose offers up notes of plum, black currant, newly turned earth and a whiff of oak. The succulent and opulently rich large-scaled flavors possess imposing power along with plenty of muscle on the balanced and wonderfully persistent finale. This is excellent and very Murgers in character; in fact the word textbook comes to mind." -Allen Meadows
