Description

Fixin is a village at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits subregion of Burgundy, known principally for red wines from the Pinot Noir grape variety. Along with its neighbor Marsannay, it is one of the most northerly appellations of the Côte de Nuits, covering roughly 100 hectares (250 acres) of vineyards spread evenly between Fixin itself and its southern neighbor, Brochon.

 

The style of wine produced in Fixin and Brochon is not dissimilar to that of neighboring Gevrey-Chambertin (just to the south), being full flavored and well structured if not quite as complex or deeply perfumed.

 

The reputation of Fixin wines has yet to reach the heights of any of the other Côte de Nuits villages, meaning that they do not command such high prices although the wines are, generally speaking, widely respected. Given that Fixin wines are often compared to those of more-prestigious communes, they represent an affordable introduction to the red wines of Burgundy.

 

The dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, Pinot Noir is now adopted and adored in wine regions all over the world. The variety's elusive charm has carried it to all manner of vineyards around the world and as of 2016, it was the sixth most-planted grape variety.
