2017 Berthaut-Gerbet Fixin

This comes from four parcels and sees no new oak. It`s bottled early to retain fruit and freshness. This has good concentration and a darker colour. It shows blueberry fruit - something I`ve noticed on a few Grands Crus elsewhere - and it`s delicious. It`s also that rare beast, a 12 bottle case and represents properly great value. It has really good length and a genuinely mineral finish. (CW 8/11/18)

Neal Martin

The 2017 Fixin Village comes from four vineyards and had been blended one month prior to my visit, this sample taken from foudre. It sees no new oak. It has a lovely, engaging brightness on the nose of joyful morello and crushed strawberry scents, veins of blue fruit emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and hints of sour cherry imparting a welcome edginess to the tart finish and its saline aftertaste. This offers a fine introduction to Amélie Berthaut`s winemaking skill. 87-89 points
