Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

Domaine Berthaut has been a family winery for at least 7 generations. The story begins at the end of the 18th century with François Berthaut's father and a few hectares of vines in Fixin, at 9 Rue Noisot. Then came Firmin followed by Bernard, who died early. His wife Jeanne ran the estate until their son Guy came of age. Guy took over the estate in 1930. In the aftermath of the war, Guy began to market his wines in bottles, enlarging the property with the purchase of the house at 18 rue Noisot and the rental of new sharecropping plots in the town of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Vincent and Denis Berthaut took over from their father Guy in 1974. During their careers, Vincent and Denis extended the estate by purchasing vines in Fixin. Amélie, daughter of Denis, took over the family business in 2013.

Amélie Berthaut, Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

Amélie Berthaut took over the family domaine in 2013.

She believes that great wines are made in the vineyard. Hard work, invested in the vineyard year round pays off. Amélie puts her words into action, the tiny parcel of Echezeaux is being taken care of by: "the only person that could meet my exacting standards – which is me!”.

The vineyards are cultivated in a natural way, without the use of herbicides. All grapes arriving to the domaine go through careful sorting making sure nothing but perfect grapes gets into the fermenting vats. Amélie chooses not to pump the destemmed grapes into the vats, everything is done gently by gravitation.

The estate covers 18 hectares, mainly in Fixin, but also Gevrey Chambertin, Vosne Romanée and Flagey Echezeaux. The wines are all from controlled appellations and 90% are red. ​They are investing a lot of resources in new equipment, such as a new vibrating sorting table and replacing concrete vats with stainless steel ones.

The vines are cultivated with respect for the environment. The wines are vinified and aged in a non-interventionist way. As the inscription of 1693 above the door of 9 Rue Noisot says:​ "Bien faire vaut mieux que dire" - a rough translation of which is "judge me by my actions, not by my words".
