Type: Red Wine
Grape: Pinot Noir
Amelie Berthaut is the daughter of Denis Berthaut and Marie-Andree Gerbet and took over winemaking responsibilities a few years ago. She previously studied oenology in Bordeaux before making wine in Bandol, France and Dunn in California before returning to her family's estate in 2013. Amelie has taken the wines from the humble appellation of Fixin in the Cotes de Nuits to a new level with her passion and attention to quality. Amelie farms as organically as possible, though the vineyards are not certified organic.
Grapes for this wine come from four parcels: Au Près, Fixey, Clos du Villages, and Sorgentière. Fully destemmed. Fermentations are completed in cement; the wine is then aged for 12 months in barrel (no new oak). Total élèvage is 18 months.
Exuberant aromas of vibrant red fruit infused with hints of violet. The palate is medium-bodied with dark berry notes and supple tannins.
