Tannic & Delicate
Fixin (pronounced “Fissin”) is situated in the Côte de Nuits, right between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin. It is known for the 10th century church of Saint-Antoine and the manor of La Perrière, where once the monks of Cîteaux came to enjoy the good air and the good wine.
Domaine Armelle et Jean-Michel Molin is a family-run winery that takes pride in farming their 7 hectares of vineyards organically and following biodynamic principles.
Made from healthy hand-harvested grapes, this Fixin Rouge ages for a year in French oak barrels. The reds are what are known as “winter wines” because they need to spend some time in bottle. High-coloured, it has a brilliant deep purple or what the Burgundians call “deep mid-red”. The bouquet comprises floral scents of violet and peony, fruity hints of blackcurrant, Morello cherry and quince; and a special peppery note. With age this Fixin will acquire a heightened and rounded attack and solid structure. The fullness is remarkable and the texture delicate.
Powerful yet delicate, its tannic structure makes it a worthy partner for good cuts of meat such as braised pork, beef rib steak with parsley, or poultry stews including their Indian variants (curry, tandoori). However, the delicacy of its aromas and of its finish also makes it a candidate for more inventive combinations such as paella, tapas, or spring-rolls. As far as cheese is concerned, it suits the delicacy of a Chaource, the lusciousness of a Comté, or the strong flavours of an Époisses.
