Recognized in 1936, the designation of origin Fixin is located in the north of the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation, between Dijon and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Its 95 hectare vineyard is planted almost entirely in Pinot Noir grapes for the production of great red wines from Burgundy . Only a few hectares are planted in Chardonnay for white wines. Located on limestone soils, the terroir of the Fixin appellation is oriented east, south-east, on low slopes but whose slopes reach 380 meters of altitude. Five “climats” (parcels) are classified in Fixin Premier cru in view of the quality of the soils and the climatic conditions which allow to obtain an optimal maturation and concentration of the grapes. The appellation Fixin produces wines for ageing, with tight and marked tannins, wines "winter", which must be kept at least five to ten years in the cellar before understanding its full flavor and complexity. The red wines of Fixin , close to those of Gevrey-Chambertin, are wines in shades of deep purple to violin. Their nose develops floral notes of the violet type and notes typical of wines from Pinot Noir on the Côtes de Nuits, such as blackcurrant and griotte. It’s tannic and is also accompanied by animal and spicy notes. Young, Fixin wines are marked by slightly drying tannins, but which blend remarkably when the wines have aged, to give a rich structure and "chew". It fills the mouth with powerful and persistent aromas of cherry. The white wines of Fixin are mineral and floral, with notes of hawthorn pronounced according to vinification.
