Importer Notes: In 1693, a motto was carved into a stone lintel in the Berthauts' house: Bien faire vax miev que dir, “doing right is better than talk.”

Amélie Berthaut is already receiving a lot of attention. She is indisputably charming, but more importantly, she is hard-working, thoughtful, and talented. Her prevailing quality, however, is humility. For example, she turned down Daniel Johnnes’ invitation to the 2018 Paulée in San Francisco because “I’m not ready,” even though we all thought she was. Bien faire vax miev que dir.

Amélie has received an impressive array of vineyards from her mother and father who owned and managed separate family domaines. The newly-baptized Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet includes all the vineyards of Domaine Denis Berthaut and parts of the vineyards of Domaine François Gerbet, totaling 16 hectares located in the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, in the villages of Fixin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, and Vosne-Romanée.
