Since her first vintage in 2013 Amelie Berthaut and her husband Nicolas Faure have built this domaine into one of the finest on the Cote d'Or. An only child, she inherited all of the vineyards from both her mother and father. The young couple farm 16 hectares - mostly in Fixin and the Hautes-Cotes de Nuits and smaller parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot and Vosne-Romanee. Her wines are sublime, elegant and refined. The lutte-raisonnee farming is superb and Nicolas spends a lot of time on their back-vintage tractor. Fermentation takes place in concrete, then in barrel for the malolactic fermentation and the remainder of aging in the very cold cellar. There is a maximum of 20% new oak for the village level wines, some of the top cuvees may see 50% but not always.
