  • Goedhuis, January 2014

    The brilliant purple colour follows through into the nose which is full of logenberries and raspberries. A wine of structure and breadth, with a natural volume of flavours that support the oak and tannins on the finish. An extremely well made wine, with real length and surprising finesse on the finish.

  • Neal Martin, December 2013, Score: 88-90

    The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey comes from 0.49-hectare plot of 60-year old vines. It has a very refined bouquet that just needs a little more terroir expression: introspective at the moment, yet complex and nicely delineated. The palate stops you in your tracks with its cashmere texture. It is struck through with a fine bead of acidity, the fruit so pure that it is almost like caviar and consequently, I feel that it just dispenses with some of its individuality, as gorgeous as it is.

  • Burghound, January 2014, Score: 89-92

    Here too the nose is quite firmly reduced. The medium weight flavors possess a seductive mouth feel as there is plenty of dry extract buffering the otherwise moderately firm but ripe tannins on the lightly mineral-inflected finish. I very much like the balance and if this can add depth during its evolution it should merit the upper portion of my range. Drink 2020+

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2014, Score: 16.5

    100% new oak. Vines 60+ years old – same as Sylvain. Fairly cool spot. Deep flavoured with some (unusual for 2012) autumnal notes. Vigorous start with a whack of ripe fruit and the oak only just poking through. Still embryonic and pretty muscular. Lots of freshness on the finish. Drink 2020-2030

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

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.
