Albert Bichot Fixin Clos de la Perriere 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
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.
