    As good as the Malconsorts is, this effortlessly surpasses it though the expression is completely different. This is velvety, silk and lace compared to robust muscularity and power and the panoply of spices is simply unbelievable. To be sure, this is not a dense wine and certainly no bruiser but the purity of expression is astonishing and the finish goes on and on. At present, this is reserved and tight yet I could taste it hours later. One of the best wines of the vintage and while it is rare and expensive, don't hesitate if you find it. Drink: 2012-2020.Notes: from a tiny .1673 ha parcel.Comments: don't miss!

    (With thanks to Philip Rich). Everything that this displayed from barrel has not only been retained but amplified since I last tried it. An expressive and utterly seductive black pinot fruit nose that is both broad and wonderfully classy leads to flavors that are velvety, silky and lacy while offering wonderful depth and simply superb length. To be sure, this is not a dense wine and certainly no bruiser but the purity of expression is astonishing and the finish goes on and on. At 6 years of age, this is just beginning to open up and while there is still plenty of upside development to be had, there is already enough here to make it awfully attractive. In sum, this is one of the best wines of the vintage and while it is rare and expensive, don't hesitate if you find it. Drink: try 2014+.

Sylvain Cathiard is one of the top growers in Vosne Romanée, a region not shy of exceptional talent. He only has around 4.25 hectares of vines, therefore the quantity that he makes is particularly small. Traditionally, Burgundy domaines are renowned for being minute in size, and he is definitely amongst the smallest. In addition, he has some of the most exceptional vineyards, which read like a Who's Who list of the Côte de Nuits, many of which are located next to grand crus sites. This combination is lethal for allocations. Too little wine with too many open hands all waiting for their fair share. SInce 2011 his talented son, Sébastien, has been running the domaine.Read less

Region

Romanée Saint Vivant

Romanée-St-Vivant, which takes its name from the monastery of St-Vivant founded in c. 900, is a Grand Cru vineyard in Vosne-Romanée on the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It is the largest of Vosne-Romanée's six Grands Crus and produces red wine only. The vineyard is located on the slope to the north of the town of Vosne-Romanée and is the nearest vineyard to this village. Romanée-Saint-Vivant's soils are deep and rich in clay and lime, which means the wines of Romanée-St-Vivant are usually lighter and less powerful than its neighbours'. Domaine de la Romanée Conti is the largest proprietor, owning over half of the area's 9.5 ha.
