Here is a hard-to-find Bourgogne Rouge from 7th generation Domaine, Berthaut-Gerbet located in Fixin. With only a few hectares of vines, Domaine Bertheau slowly increased its size through the generations, with each family member doing their part to perpetuate this old address. Starting with sharecropping and whole selling juice until Guy Berthaut assumed control in the 1930s, intending to build a brand and bottle his wines after WWII. Berthaut expanded to parts of Gevrey-Chambertin and, in the 1960s, began exporting their wines. Years later, in 1974, Vincent and Dennis Barthaut took the lead and expanded the Domaine holdings further with more premier cru and village vines in Fixin and constructed a new cellar in 2005. Denis married Marie-Andree Gerbet of Domaine Francois Gerbet and had a daughter, Amelie, who now works with her father Denis managing the now 13 hectares of vines. Vineyard management is done sustainably without using chemicals in the cellar, a traditional hands-off approach, and minimal new oak. Though not a flagship wine, the Les Prielles Bourgogne Rouge is a rare Cuvee sourced from vines at the edge of the Fixin appellation planted in 1980. It is a fresh wine with a lovely display of red fruits showing quite a bit of detail and refinement for the appellation and a red burgundy that is a joy to drink. 2019 will be a fantastic vintage for this Cuvee, and we currently have the only bottles available in the USA right now. Highly recommended!
