The nose features notes of black cherry and wild strawberries. Ample and very fine, it offers silky tannins. Its mineral hints remind the characteristics of the soil it comes from. The natural maturity of the fruit is balanced by the freshness of this terroir of altitude. On the palate, the aromas are complex, with fruit, liquorice and juniper berry. Our Fixin 1er Cru "Clos de la Perrière" can accompany meat cooked in sauce - especially red wine sauces - as well as game and fine cheeses.

Aromas of plums, spices, sweet soil and potpourri introduce the 2017 Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perrière, medium in body, a satiny wine with juicy acids, a sweet core of fruit and creditable length on the finish.

The 2017 Fixin Clos de la Perrière 1er Cru has a tightly wound, quite focused bouquet combining red and black fruit with pressed iris and a light fish oil tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is very linear in style and just a tad pinched on the finish at the moment. Hopefully it will gain more personality once bottled.

Currant and cranberry flavors are fused to a tight matrix of tannins in this linear red. Shows plenty of fruit for balance, along with earth and spice notes. Best from 2021 through 2024.
