2014 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Thorey, Sylvain Cathiard

A vibrant confit cherry core with blackcurrant and a hint of graphite running through, this is a dense and muscular wine which positively throbs with power. Fine-grained yet persistent and mouthfilling tannins provide stuffing to the mid-palate, which is completed by an exotically spiced, long and textured finish. A hedonistic treat which bears all the purity and precision of Sébastien’s winemaking talent.

2014 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Thorey, Sylvain Cathiard
Domaine Sylvain Cathiard

Arranging a visit to see Sébastien Cathiard can be tricky: this is a domaine where the wines come first, before commercial considerations. But this care pays dividends, with his perfectly-kept, airy cellar giving something of an insight into the wines of this much-prized domaine. It became one of Burgundy’s most in-demand addresses under Sébastien’s father, Sylvain, during the 1990s and having taken over in 2010 Sébastien has further raised its reputation.
