    Amelie Berthaut

    Een van de nieuwe sterren in de Franse Bourgogne is Amelie Berthaut. Na de samensmelting van twee familie Domaines (Berthaut, Fixin & Gerbet, Vosne-Romanée) heeft Amelie maar liefst zestien hectare wijngaard in haar bezit met de volledige focus op Pinot Noir! Ze maakt een heerlijk volle rijke stijl Pinot met diepgang en intensiteit. 


    The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Petits Monts 1er Cru has a very sensual and creamy bouquet with luscious red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, flirting with jamminess but thankfully avoiding that. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is well balanced and more harmonious than its peers, with a fine bead of acidity and a fine-boned finish. This should age with grace and panache and seems like it is putting some distance between itself and Amélie Berthaut’s Les Suchots. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. Vinous 94/100

    The 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Petits Monts offers up an appealing bouquet of sweet red berries, dried flowers and orange rind, framed by a deft touch of wood. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and supple, framed by a fine-grained but firm chassis of tannin that asserts itself on the finish. It seems to me that the improved farming that Berthaut has instituted since taking control of this parcel is beginning to make itself felt, as this is more vibrant than previous renditions.

    Amélie Berthaut's emergence as one of Burgundy's rising stars by now needs no reiteration, but the quality of her 2017 portfolio demonstrates that the plaudits she has received are amply justified. Uniting the vineyards of the Domaines Denis Berthaut and François Gerbet, this enterprise now encompasses some 16 hectares, with Amélie's fiancé Nicolas Faure overseeing the vineyards. The Berthaut cuvées, always excellent but decidedly sturdy and structured in their youth, are now suppler and more accessible while retaining the structure to age. The cuvées that hail from the Gerbet vineyards, which were less well farmed, are making tangible progress too, as their soils are worked and chemical treatments are reduced or eliminated—progress evident in the wines' enhanced vitality and completeness, even in the generous 2017 vintage. With a cellar well-stocked with used barrels, Amélie's use of oak is also increasingly judicious. In short, all the stars are aligned at this address, and readers shouldn't hesitate to seek out the wines. And I'll add that it would be a mistake to neglect the superb Fixins at the expense of the grander appellations from Vosne-Romanée. William Kelley 92/100
