Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2011

    Aux Thorey was planted by Sylvain's grandfather the year he was born 57 years ago, and as a result,it is a Cru very close to his heart. Sylvain describes it as a Nuits in Vosne clothing, with its delicious raspberry fruit aromas and flavours. It has a beautifully silky texture whilst remaining very intense and finishes very rich and full.

    Score: 91-93

    Tasted out of barrel at the Domaine. Bright redcurrant and a touch of cranberry leaf on the nose that to be honest has a difficult time following after the Suchots. The palate has a fleshy, succulent entry with touches of vanilla inflecting the strawberry and cherry fruit. Very pure and generous towards the finish. Very fine.

  • BURG

    Score: 91-93

    A lightly spiced nose combines with earth, underbrush, game and very ripe red berry and plum aromas to introduce rich, powerful and serious middle weight flavors that possess ample amounts of extract, all wrapped in a dense and palate staining finish. This is an excellent effort that offers both power and elegance. Drink: 2019+.Comments: outstanding!

    57-year-old vines on the Vosne side. Bright crimson with quite a bit more sort of liqueur-like depth than the Suchots. Very racy and dancing but definitely more like 2000's sprightliness than2005's magnificence. Charm-school wine! Just a little bit of lift and sinew stops it from being tooeasy.

Producer

Domaine Sylvain Cathiard

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.

Region

Nuits Saint Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
