This particular wine comes from the premier cru vineyard 'Les Arvelets' It is the northernmost premier cru in the Côte d’Or. It lies between 310 and 340-meters elevation. Amelies vines have an everage age of 40 meaning the roots have had time to really dig deep.
Top notch Pinot made by a winemaker who is about to put Fixin back on the Burgundy map.
Amelie Berthaut has recently burst onto the wine scene after taking over her mother and fathers domaines and inheriting an enviable list of vineyard plots. The bulk of those are based in Fixin, an almost forgotten village just south of the infamous Gevrey Chambertain. She took over at the young age of 25 and has taken the domaine on in her stride and is making some spectacular wines.
Domaine Berthaut has been a family winery for at least 7 generations. Amélie, daughter of Denis Berthaut, settled on the family farm in 2013 after studying agricultural engineering and oenology in Bordeaux. Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet was born, bringing together all of the vines of Domaine Berthaut and part of the vines of Domaine Gerbet.
In 2017, Nicolas Faure, Amélie's husband, joined the estate as cultivation manager, after having learned his skills at JL Chave, Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Domaine Prieuré-Roch.
