A much more fruit-rich style from the deeper clays of Fixin, but this vineyard is named for the mass of little limestone pebbles and this gives the wine a lift and shape too. Sleek feel with fine ripe tannins, finishing bright and firm. Drinking range: 2023 - 2027 L&S (Oct 2020)

The 2019 Fixin Petits Crais is tight and a little overawed by the impressive Marsannay Charme Aux Prêtres tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, modest depth but missing a little flesh towards the finish. It has drinkability, but not longevity. Drinking range: 2022 - 2027 Rating: 86-88 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2021)
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 took the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010), but immensely sadly he was forced to do a single non-organic treatment in 2016, because of the terrible conditions, so he was back to square one - three years to re-qualify for the organic label - but this should be in place for 2020. Philippe was initially unsure if he would try for the certification again - but for all that is not planning to change the way he works - it is, he assures us, better for him and the environment and and his workers as well as for quality, and the domaine will continue along organic lines.
