Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet 2017 Fixin "Les Clos" Burgundy
Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet is one of the new and exciting estates in Burgundy. The estate includes Domaine Berthaut in Fixin, Domaine Gerbet in Vosne-Romanee, and rented vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin. Amelie Berthaut has taken over operations from her father, and manages all the properties. The style of these wines has undergone a gradual evolution from very pure and classic to more mid-palate richness, but still with the trademark Berthaut purity.
Spiced red fruit, floral for days with just a scrape of mineral and earth. Light and graceful in the mouth but good depth and tension. Drinking delicious now but has enough of everything to hold up for a few years in the cellar.
Fully destemmed and aged in 20% new oak.
Hedonistic! Expressive fruit aromas of fresh cherries and pomegranate with savory truffle notes and oak spice. Replicated on the palate with the fruit very juicy and rich. Pair with duck, beef, game, and lamb.
