The domaine was started in the 1930’s by Sylvain’s Grandfather and is now run by his son Sebastian, who is ratcheting up the already excellent level of quality. Sebastien has been fully in charge since 2011. All of its holdings together are 5.5 ha, so there is not a lot of wine produced, but the demand is high.
One can’t put it better than Neal Martin did when he wrote: “These are gloriously silky smooth, complex wines; not just with the top Premier Crus but down to the generic Burgundy. It’s the intensity and focus that set Cathiard apart, wines with supreme definition and purity that seduce the palate like a beautiful courtesan.“
