Domaine Sylvain Cathiard is a prized family-owned winery in Burgundy's acclaimed Côte de Nuits wine region. Renowned for producing exquisite and premium-priced Pinot Noir, Sylvain Cathiard boasts plots in various premier and grand cru vineyards.
The Cathiards have 5.5 hectares of vineyards in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, including small holdings in Clos de Vougeot and Romanée-St-Vivant. The glorious Nuits-St-Georges Aux Thorey is a more recent addition to their collection.
Sylvain Cathiard's story began with his grandfather, who arrived in Burgundy in the 1930s, subsequently securing work with the prestigious Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Lamarche. He built a portfolio of vine parcels that he passed on to his son André, who took on the challenge of bottling his own fine wines.
Sylvain Cathiard has built an unrivalled reputation for the quality of his now highly sought-after wines, which are exported to Burgundy lovers around the world.
Many vines are impressively old and low yield. Sylvain uses no artificial fertilizers or pesticides and the vines are meticulously cared for. He, his son and his wife Marinette do all the vineyard work themselves with extreme care.
