Red Wine /// Pinot Noir // Burgundy / France
From four parcels, totaling 2.6 hectares: Au Près, Fixey, Clos du Villages, and Sorgentière. Fully destemmed. Both fermentations are completed in cement; the wine is then aged for 12 months in barrel (no new oak). Total élèvage is 18 months.
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
