Description
  • Located between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin (pronounced "Fissin") is one of the northernmost appellations of the Côte de Nuits. Its vineyards are based on a clay-limestone marly soil and are mostly exposed to the east. Less known than its neighbors, it represents excellent value for money. Powerful and structured wine, Fixin will be perfect after a few years of aging.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    With a rich ruby robe, and a powerful gamey nose, the Fixin has the hallmark of classic red Burgundy. The palate is fruity with a hint of truffle, and the tannins rounded and supple. One of Burgundy's lesser-known appellations, and terrific value for money.
  • Food Pairing
    Red meat - game meat - mature cheeses
