Description

Fixin does not produce any Grand Cru; however, during the 19th century, one of its appellations competed with the greatest Burgundy wines: the Clos de la Perrière used to be compared to the Chambertin!

The Monks of Cîteaux, during the 12th century, were the first to discover the mysteries of the quality of these wines. In 1142, they settled in the heart of this 5-hectare vineyard (just over 12 acres) and built there the "Manoir de la Perrière" which they dedicated to wine ageing.

They chose the Clos de la Perrière on purpose, considering its good "terroir" and ideal exposure.

Tasting

"Bright intense ruby-red colour. A lot of aromas-reminiscent of small black fruit, spices, toasted notes, caramel, liquorice, mint-constitute a most harmonious and pure wine. Ample on the palate, it offers a surprising length on a refined tannic structure, and provides a sense of fullness. Very enticing and generous wine, both fleshy and elegant. A "haute couture" wine, corresponding to the style of the Maison Joseph Drouhin, and typical of the Côte de Nuits".

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin 

Vintage 

The reds display a bright ruby-red colour and reveal aromas of black fruit and spices above silky tannins. 2011 wines are well-balanced.
