This gorgeous expression of Gamay comes from a forty year old parcel planted over clay and limestone in the village of Fixin, right in the middle of Burgundy‚Äôs Cote d’Or. Most of the wine fermented as whole bunches for four days, whilst the remainder was pressed directly, added to the fermentation and after a week everything was pressed to a single demi-muid until the following spring. Pretty and perfumed, its notes of red berries, forest floor and flowers draw you in, whilst the palate displays a pleasant density and the finest of tannins. A wine that reflects the pedigree of the site, where every little detail appears to be in place.
