The Cathiard Aux Reignots is slightly in the background, as the Les Suchots is regardeded as the bigger wine of the two – and clearly no three after the two stars Aux Malconsort and Romanée Saint-Vivant,
While the wines have always been very fine from this estate the quality has clearly taken a big jump forward since Sebastien Cathiard took over in 2011.
The Aux Reignots is in my view a bit overlooked and I have therefore taken a closer look at this lovely cuvée.
Aux Reignots at the top of La Romanee
Aux Reignots is located just above La Romanee between Les Petits Monts to the north and Champs Perdrix to the south – see map below.
The vineyard is 1.62 ha – split in 20 plots and there are currently 10 owners on the vineyard.

There are 10 owners on Aux Reignots currently … but the ownership could be even more fragmented within the different families.
