2020 Sylvain Cathiard, Vosne-Romanée, Burgundy, France

We come together around the idea of saying “yes”: A small word that contains everything.

Domaine Sylvain Cathiard is beloved for silky and complex wines, with so much vitality that they nearly have a pulse. The family’s history in Burgundy began in the 1930s with Sylvain’s grandfather, a Savoie native. Since 2011, the estate has been run by Sylvain’s son Sebastien, who prioritizes organic practices in the vineyard (though he’s not interested in certification) and a hands-off approach in the cellar, with far less new oak than is the norm.

Though 2020 was an extreme vintage, the wines themselves are fresh and harmonious. The 2020 Vosne-Romanée, which received a score of 90-92 from Wine Advocate, features notes of black and red cherry, tart cranberry, tonka, and anise hyssop, with a comforting through-note of forest floor. Lively acidity, with velvety tannins. Just marvelous.
