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.
This wine comes from four parcels, totaling just over 3.5 hectares: Au Près, La Vionne, Clos du Villages, and Clos André. Both fermentations are completed in cement; the wine is then aged for 12 months in barrel (20% new). Total élèvage is 18 months.
Medium-bodied with bright acidity. Ripe red berries intertwined with savory notes.
