About Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet:
The clamour that now surrounds this domaine is quite extraordinary. Amélie has been in charge since the 2013 vintage and her wines are highly sought after and mainly sell out en primeur. Based in Fixin, she has inherited vineyards from both her father and her mother, who shares a domaine with her sister (Amélie’s aunt) in Vosne-Romanée. As a result, she has amassed a fascinating array of appellations, from Côte de Nuits Villages up to various Grands Crus. In many ways, it is what she has done with her vineyards in Fixin that really excites and marks her out as a winemaker of great talent. In a bygone era, Fixin used to command both a reputation and a price on a par with the most illustrious vineyards of neighbouring Gevrey-Chambertin. Yet, for the past few decades, it has been languishing in the doldrums, save for a few rare examples (think Mortet or Meo-Camuzet). To highlight its undoubted potential, Amélie has separated the various parcels she has and produced a string of different cuvées which show the complexities and intriguing characters that would have got drinkers excited in previous generations.
