Story

The wine
The village of Fixin is located south of Dijon, between the villages of Couchey and Marsannay. This vineyard located on the climat "Les Foussottes" is located just at the northern border of the appellation, in the upper part of the hill.
The vintage
The 2017 vintage offers great wines very aromatic, marked by intense floral and fruity scents. They are frank and very fresh and their texture, underlined by fine and tender tannins, is very elegant. Of good length, they offer on their youth a very beautiful balance and will know how to age harmoniously.
Vinification
After meticulous sorting, both during harvest and at the arrival in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and put in the tank using elevators which avoid any pumping or crushing too early. A cold pre-fermentation maceration phase allows the gentle extraction of tannins and aromas before the appearance of alcohol. Pigging and pumping over are decided on a case-by-case basis in order to obtain an optimal balance guaranteeing beautiful harmony.
Maturing
12 to 18 months in French oak barrels of various capacities, ages and origins in order to smooth the impact of the wood as much as possible and allow a fair expression of the nuances of the appellation. No racking during aging and re-massing for 2 to 3 months before to clarify the wines as naturally as possible.
