Delicious. Great wine. — a month ago
Beautifully dense Pinot noir from Fixin. Need to buy more of this and hold onto it for a bit. — a year ago
Seemingly less oak helps make this approachable now, though did open open nicely with a decent over 90min — 2 months ago
Sorrel, sun screen, tarragon, modeling clay smell, color is a thick clear pink, taste is acidic, slightly oaked, some fruit (cherry) but the acid and then meaty earth prevail and it’s musty which sits and then lingers with no halt as it fades. — 6 months ago
A lighter ruby but really rich wine with tannins that need some more time. From Wasserman — 2 years ago
The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Petits Monts 1er Cru has a very sensual and creamy bouquet with luscious red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, flirting with jamminess but thankfully avoiding that. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is well balanced and more harmonious than its peers, with a fine bead of acidity and a fine-boned finish. This should age with grace and panache and seems like it is putting some distance between itself and Amélie Berthaut’s Les Suchots. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.

I've said this time and again - I love Amelie's wines, but I guess it's time to stop... since Nicolas has now joined the estate. What a dream team! Amelie's Rousseau-like touch on the wines, with Nicolas' DRC-emboldened viticulture skills. I love Berthaut-Gerbet!
The 2015 Clos Vougeat is the first vintage of this wine. Got this straight from the domaine and was planning to keep it around a little longer, but I got tempted. Plus I wanted to share my love for Berthaut-Gerbet with a good friend.
Sure it's practically murder, but gawd, it's so pleasurable. The bouquet was filled with red and dark berries, rose and sweet spice. Palate's so rich, yet energetic. Oak, seamless. Texture, supple. Finish, endless with an underlying minerality. The wine was just vibrating with energy. A fine and pure example of CV. So glad this showed so well, given how lots of 15' red Burgs have just shut right down. — 8 months ago
