2019 Fixin Les Crais, Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

2019 Fixin Les Crais, Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

This wine has been bottled as a single vineyard cuvée by Amélie’s father for many years, and remains the flagship wine of the estate. It is just over a hectare and sits right in the heart of the appellation, just below the village itself. The alluvial soils, particularly at the bottom of the parcel, are well-draining. The vines age between 15 and 70 years, and the wine has a brilliantly grippy fresh fruit drive with ample tannins and a spicy backbone.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Fixin Les Crais, which includes 20% stems addition, sports dark berry fruit like the Les Clos, touches of iodine and violet, showing just a little more amplitude by comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, very harmonious with lovely salinity. This feels very cohesive with a persistent finish. As good Fixin gets basically.
