Fixin 1er Cru "Clos de la Perrière" - Monopole


Côte de Nuits


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Fixin (whose 'x' is pronounced like an 's') is located in the Côte de Nuits, between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin.
The Perrière Manor was built in the 12th century by the Cîteaux monks, who were the first to realize the potential of this 12-acre clos.
No Grand Crus are produced in Fixin, but due to the exceptional quality of this Climat, which is located at altitudes of between 350 and 380 metres with ideal southeastern exposure, it has been compared with neighbouring Chambertin!


The nose reveals intense scents of fruits (black cherry, strawberry, blackcurrant...) and flowers (violet, peony...). The palate, full bodied and boasting great finesse, is supported by silky tannins. This voluptuousness is enhanced by a mineral profile reminiscent of its terroir and freshness that is characteristic of its higher altitude. The finish is long and complex with accents of liquorice and juniper berries. This wine is earthy in terms of structure and airy when it comes to expression.
