Quality wine: an expression of the nature
of the land.

Since its creation in 2006 by merging the estates of Jean Garaudet and Yves Darviot, Domaine Berthelemot has enchanted wine lovers with its fine wines in the USA, China, Australia, United Kingdom, Belgium and, of course, connoisseurs in France.
The domain’s reputation has not only been built up on the many merit awards and commentaries from critics in the trade but also by new acquisitions and appellations: after Beaune, Pommard, Monthelie, Meursault, as from 2012, , activity is to be extended to plots in Puligny, Chassagne and again Meursault in order to meet demand for white wines.

All this would not have been possible without the founder of the domain, Brigitte Berthelemot’s vocation and fervent dedication, together with her estate manager and confirmed winemaker, Marc Cugney; furthermore, the vines on the domain are sound and in peak condition for producing the very best wines. It must not be forgotten that the key to success is the care given to the vine and its environment…..For example, it is essential to be able to react according to analyses of the soil and the vine plant itself, in order to assess the appropriate method of cultivation with the least herbicidal and phytosanitary treatments.

The Burgundy region is damp, further marked by a high proportion of limestone in the soil: the pinot noir vine is fragile and needs great precision in time and dosage for spraying according to vegetation growth and risks of pest infestation. This is the skill which has made it possible to produce such quality red wines with the pinot noir vine in the different “climats” in Burgundy and likewise for the white, chardonnay wines, indigenous to the Côte de Beaune area.

Through hard work and perseverance the domain was qualified in 2009 for “agriculture raisonnée” certification and a further ecological standard qualification is in process.

Each grape harvest is different regarding the degree of maturity, sugar, acidity and tannin levels: nevertheless, for each vintage we endeavour to produce the best wine possible reflecting the nature of the land and the characteristics of the year.

Our reward is to know that our wines are appreciated.
