2 OF EACH: BOURGOGNE ROUGE, HAUTES COTES DE NUITS, FIXIN VILLAGE 2019
The sophistication and precision of Berthaut’s wines are more commonly seen in winemakers 20-30 years her senior. We very well may be witnessing the birth and rise of one of Burgundy’s next great domaines! SOTHEBY'S
I won't play the same record and blather on about Amelie Berthaut leading the way in Fixin, you should know already. She continues to lead the way in Fixin in terms of quality, not just among her Premier Cru's, but also at entry level. NEAL MARTIN
Neal Martin does actually proceed to blather on about Amelie leading the way so we cut the above quote short. We are excited to have these wines.
Fixin is the most overlooked appellation in Burgundy. Amelie Berthaut is one of the most talked about young wine makers in Burgundy. Her wines are rustic and authentic. Despite Amelie being the bright face of modern Burgundy, her wines are pretty old school right down to the label. A lick of integrated oak underpins the rich Nuits fruit with great texture and length and most importantly: purity.
Her 2018 was a roaring success with STSWers despite 2018 being an uneven vintage - Amelie proved the old adage that a good producer will transcend the vintage. 2019 is a stellar vintage, but yields are down. The wines are spectacular, so you need to act now. STSwine
