About Sylvain Cathiard

Untill the 2010 vintage Sylvain Cathiard presided over a small 4.5-hectare Domaine, based in Vosne-Romanee. Since then, his son Sebastien has taken over but continues to produce wines in the same style - pure, sophisticated and polished Burgundy, bottled without fining or filtration. The wines are aged in upwards of 50 to 70% new oak depending on the cuvée.

Appellation: Coteaux Bourguignons

An interesting oddity of an appellation, the Coteaux Bourguignons (Bourguignon meaning 'from Burgundy') label covers wines made throughout the 'greater Burgundy' area. From north of Chablis, all the way down to and including - most notably and controversially -Beaujolais.

Grape Blend: Pinot Noir | Gamay

The classic Passetoutgrains blend. Bourgogne Passetoutgrains must contain more than 30% Pinot Noir, more than 15% Gamay, and the proportion of other allowable grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc & Pinot Gris) must be less than 15%.
