Only just finished malo, and the fruit is ever so slightly on the back foot. Chunkier, more structured blacker style than the Marsannays.

Vivid in colour, with an attractively scented fresh red berry fruits fragrance, this is delicately raspberryish with an elegant lean streak of fresh acidity and a really nice purity of Pinot Noir flavour behind the rustic backbone of tannins on the finish.
89/100 (Oct 2014)

Very light nose. Quite a broad spread of ripe fruit on the palate with some marked acidity on the finish. 2016-2020

On the strength of this vintage, Fixin is one of those lesser-known Côte de Nuits appellations that's very much on the up, with wines like this red Burgundy with its fresh red berry fruits fragrance, and behind it some lively raspberry fruit with juicy suppleness of texture and balance.


The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010). Philippe's arrival has also been accompanied by a big jump in quality, and the ranges of 2010 and 2011 wines now available a great value too.
