30 winemakers under 40 to watch (part one)

6. Sebastian Cathiard (28)

Last August, Sebastian Cathiard took over from his father Sylvain as director of Domaine Sylvain Cathiard, which spans five-and-a-half hectares of vineyards in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, including tiny holdings in Clos Vougueot and Romanée- St-Vivant.

Having studied oenology in Beaune, which involved stints at Domaine de Chantemerle in Chablis and Château Smith-Haut Lafitte in Pessac-Léognan, after graduating, Cathiard jetted off to New Zealand for six month to work at Domaine Fromm in Marlborough. Working under his father’s wing since 2005, he took over winemaking duties at the estate with the 2011 vintage, making wines that offer, according to Jasper Morris MW, “exceptional energy and purity of fruit”.

  1. I’m not happy with this tirade against red trousers(!)

    You have 20 more chances to include Matthieu Baudry of Bernard Baudry on this list!.. if not – you missed one great one!
