François Berthenet, named "Wine Producer of the Year" by the 2020 Guide Hachette!
A masterstroke... for Domaine Berthenet in Montagny-lès-Buxy (Côte Chalonnaise)!
Each year, the Guide Hachette, supported by specialists, selects the "Wine Producers of the Year", people who have stood out in particular for their cuvées or who have made their mark within the Guide Hachette's strict selection, which features quality wines that are sure to please.
"Is this a joke?!" was François Berthenet's first reaction when he heard the news. This is the 8th year - practically consecutive - that the estate has been awarded...
This time, it is the Montagny Premier Cru Les Perrières that has stood out. It is neither a joke nor even a coincidence. A few years ago, the grower was already thinking of showcasing this terroir within his range. It is a rather early-ripening zone: "It benefits from full eastern exposure and we usually pick the grapes on the second day of the harvest", he pointed out.
2017 was the inaugural vintage for this cuvée. For a first attempt it turned out to be a smashing success!
