"It is remarkable how far Amélie Berthaut-Gerbet has come in such a short time." -Neal Martin
In 2013, at just 25 years old, Amélie Berthaut took over the majority of her mother and father’s separate estates to form Berthaut-Gerbet. Her wines immediately created a major stir.
Berthaut's 2019s show a breathtaking finesse and multifaceted personality. The vintage firmly plants her as one of Burgundy's top talents.
This is easy to see in the Gevrey-Chambertin Combe du Dessus. This is a well-situated site just below the 1er Cru Cazetiers. Berthaut-Gerbet's old vine holdings bring an extra layer of intensity.
The 2019 Combe du Dessus is a beautiful marriage of power and energy. There's an ample amount of Gevrey's soil accented dark fruits. This is complemented by a radiant core that gives the muscular nature of the wine a sense of delicacy and poise.
In short, this is a dynamite bottle. Before closing, I should warn you that this is a small parcel that we expect to sell out quickly.

Neal Martin, Vinous Media: "The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Combe de Dessus has a well defined bouquet. The 1O% stems lend just a very slight pepperiness, hints of dried blood emerge with time and complement the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins This is very harmonious and silky, the 20% new oak is seamlessly integrated with a persistent finish. This will be very seductive in its youth - a beautifully crafted Gevrey."
