2012 Sylvain Cathiard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru 'Aux Malconsorts'
SKU: 4077 / B453Regular price $794.95
This tiny Domaine was established by Sylvain Cathiard’s grandfather ( who worked for Domaine de la Romanee Conti and later for Domaine Lamarche) in the 1930s and was then further built and maintained by Sylvain’s father Andre from 1969 until 1985, when Sylvain himself became involved. From 2006, he was joined by his son, Sebastian, and they have formed the estate of Sylvain Cathiard et Fils and since 2011 Sebastien is running the domaine with Sylvain retiring. Grapes are 100% de-stemmed, cold settling with indigenous yeast ferment, and new oak aging. ‘Aux Malconsorts’ is sourced from a 0.75 ha parcel, planted in 1972 and aged for 18 months.
