Located just to the south of Dijon, Fixin is one of the most northerly communes in the Côte de Nuits. Its gentle slopes face due east and the soils are limestone containing a few traces of marl. Fermented in vats for about 4 weeks, the wine is then put into oak barrels for 15 months ageing before bottling.
With solid tannic and acidic structure, Fixin is a wine of power, able to mature for five to eight years in the bottle.
Pairs well with traditional Burgundian fare: coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, hare, game and other strongly flavored dishes.
