Domaine Berthelemot is a family business based in Meursault and cultivating 15 hectares in the Côte de Beaune area (Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Beaune....). Our pledge is to produce wines revealing the true quality characteristics of the land and take care of the vine and its environment. Our wines are certified "organic" from vintage 2021.
This site is named "Sous le bois de Noël et Belles Filles".
This name is almost an ode to the legendary beauty of the nuns who used to stroll in these fields from their convent in Changey, above Pernand.
On a gradient of 8/10% of limestone rock and shallow, red-ochre topsoil of alluvium and ferruginous clay.
29 ares at an altitude of between 280 and 380 meters, planted in 1959, 1985 and 2000 on a slope due east exposed to the morning sun.

Ruby-red in colour with aromas of red fruit and cassis ; in the mouth, it is fresh, delicate and with fine tannins. The finish is mineral and saline, typical of the Pernand slopes.

- March was sunny and budburst happened too early. 5th of April frost made big damages in Puligny. Flowering occurred lately, with wind and rain, many flower aborted, confirming a low yield vintage. Fortunately, summer was hot and dry, enhancing maturation and sugar concentration by the end of summer. Harvest started 13th of September. White wines are generous and fruit driven, but high acidity gives a good concentration and length. Red wines benefited from the hot summer with a complex bouquet and round tanins.
