Berthaut-Gerbet 2022

Berthaut-Gerbet 2022

A new addition to our burgundy offering this year, from the sensational Amélie Berthaut.

 

For those of you not familiar with this domaine yet, we have provided lots of information below including descriptions of the different vineyards and multiple tasting notes from the most influential burgundy critics. For those in the know, you’ll be happy to hear that the 2022s are gorgeous and great for to your collection.

These are exciting times for Amélie Berthaut. Work has begun on her new cuverie, which judging by the size of the new hole in the ground, will clearly be a very expansive winery. It’s just what she needs, mind, and the fact that she has been making such fabulous wines from the existing building is testament to her great talent. She also has two plentiful vintages in the cellar, which will be a welcome boon following the recent small vintages of ’19, ’20 and ’21. Oh, and her ‘22s are stunning.

Back in the day, Fixin was held in considerable regard; the best wines revered in the same way as some of the top wines from Gevrey. It has five 1er Crus: Hervelets, Arvelets, Clos du Chapitre, Clos de la Perrière and Aux Cheusots (known as the monopole, Clos Napoleon). But whilst many good producers have vines in Fixin, the village has never had a ‘poster boy’ on whom to hang its hat, in the same way as other villages. Until now that is, and it just so happens that that ‘poster boy’ is in fact a young woman, who is immensely proud of the Fixins within her portfolio. She works really hard and, despite her ambition and ability, is very reflective about what she does and whether she has done it right. This humble, self-critical approach can only inspire her to make ever better wines, and as her star continues to rise, it will be very positive for the appellation that she loves to champion.

Amélie took over Domaine Denis Berthaut from her father 10 years ago and then added vineyards from her mother’s side of the family, so that Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet was born and with 16 hectares to its name. She works organically, although is not currently certified. She is open to using stems, but is not systematic about it, and consequently most wines sit somewhere in the 20 to 40% whole bunch bracket. It may be that the added space of the new cuverie will encourage her to use a little more, but having just been wowed by her 2022s I would suggest that she is not far from having the amounts just right.

We think her 2022s are the best wines she has made to date. She would never be so arrogant to say such a thing, but she does at least admit she is progressing with each vintage! They had a wonderful aromatic intensity to them plus a purity of fruit that not only belies the false reputation of Fixin as being a little rustic, but accentuates the terroir differences of her various parcels and allows them to flourish.

“I adored this range from Berthaut: pure fruit, fine extract, and nascent wines that brim with energy. Head for her unimpeachable range of Fixin cuvées, especially her over-performing En Combe Roy and Les Crais, which match the Premier Cru of Les Arvelets pound-for-pound. Best in show? A stunning Vosne-Romanée Les Petits-Monts, which, inexplicably, Berthaut expressed dissatisfaction towards, at least in terms of the viticulture. I told her that what counts is in the glass, and even if there are improvements to be made out in the vine, that doesn’t colour my arguably more objective judgments that it’s a wine I would love to have in my cellar. In fact, I preferred this to the Echézeaux, as good as that is too.”
