- One of the greatest domaines in Burgundy today
- Exceptionally rare wines
- Great vintage
The tiny domaine of Sylvain Cathiard needs little introduction for Burgundy lovers. Based in the Cote de Nuits epicentre of Vosne-Romanée, the domaine covers only 5 hectares across Vosne, Nuits-Saint-George and Chambolle-Musigny. This Bourgogne Rouge, from a parcel of 30 year old vines adjacent to the Grand Cru Clos Vougeot, is very much in the house style: beautifully fragrant, velvety-textured and already harmonious, it is easy to see why it is one of the finest Bourgognes in the region.
I rarely give blanket endorsements but the Cathiard 2015s are, quite simply, among the very best wines of the entire vintage.
