The wines from Fixin (pronounced “Fissin”) also have the right to bear the Côte de Nuits Villages appellation. The gentle slopes are a common occurrence around the village, with as much as 80 metres difference between the highest and lowest vines.Delicate and discrete, the nose features subtle notes of forest undergrowth. Fleshy and robust, this crisp, oaky wine offers harmonious balance. The finish is long with slightly spicy notes.
This Fixin can accompany meat cooked in sauce – especially red wine sauces – as well as game and mild to medium cheeses.
Wine Spectator – 90 points
Reticent in fruit expression, this red nonetheless reveals black cherry, iron and tar flavors. Solid and chunky, with dusty tannins for support. Drink now through 2023.
