The Berthaut-Gerbet estate is today a large and very exiting producer, covering the vineyards of the former parental estates Domaine Denis Berthaut and Domaine Gerbet.
There is however an additional part adding a few vineyards en fermage/en métayage to the Berthaut-Gerbet estate.
One is the very rare Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut St. Jacques the other is the Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers and finally we have the Gevrey village Clos des Chezeaux.
… these are also very interesting wines – so lets take a quick and closer look at the Lavaut St. Jacques.
Wine and people
Amélie Berthaut officially began with the 2013 vintage when she took over the Berthaut vineyards and from 2015 the Gerbet estate was merged into the new Berthaut-Gerbet estate – thus maintaining both the family names.
The first wine Amélie made was however the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut St. Jacques – a very small cuvée made from a 0.1373 ha plot 1.
The Mercier plots – Domaine des Chezeaux – en métayage
The Gevrey-Chambertin part of the Berthaut-Gerbet estate is a bit special, as these are rented vineyards with a long history with the Berthaut family.
