In 1693, a motto was carved into a stone lintel in the Berthauts’ house: Bien faire vax miev que dir, “doing right is better than talk.”
And this is at the heart of the current generation: Amélie Berthaut. She is receiving a lot of attention in wine circles. And she is indisputably charming. But more importantly, she is hard-working and humble. Amélie has received an impressive array of vineyards from her mother and father who owned and managed separate family domaines, but the heart of the domaine, physically and emotionally, is in Fixin. This lesser known Burgundy village has lacked a flagship producer, but thankfully Amelie is rectifying that! We are excited to have her Bourgogne Rouge and Fixin on the shelf! The 2018 vintage is drinking beautifully right now but should also age well.
