The Fixin appellation
Wine Tasting Notes
Fixin red wine
The Fixin red wine is often qualified as a "winter wine” because it needs to age. Highly coloured, it has a medium dark red robe with brilliant purplish overtones. The nose is shared between floral (violet, peony), fruity (blackcurrant, cherry, quince), animal, musky and pepper aromas, and cherry stone is also found. Although Fixin is often tannic and firm in its youth, when aged it presents a rounded and brilliant attack, with a strong structure. Its viscosity is noticeable, its texture delicate.
Clos de la Perrière
The wines leave a perfume of violet combining finesse and robustness.
Clos du Chapitre
This fleshy, solid wine, rich in colour, offers great depth.
The wine is characterised by a great finesse.
Les Hervelets et les Arvelets
The wines express all the nuances of the red fruit so typical of the Pinot Noir grape, set off by floral aromas, with great finesse and bouquet. The structure is clearly defined.
Fixin white wine
The wine reveals wonderfully well the heart of the Chardonnay grape. From the shales from which it springs, the wine extracts its full, rounded, viscous character, with great consistency and more discreet floral notes
