Located just to the south of Dijon, Fixin is one of the first communal ACs at the beginning of the long chain of 30 villages that forms the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The appellation’s altitude varies from 270-360 meters and its gentle slopes face due east. The soils are limestone containing a few traces of marl. This wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels for 10-12 months before bottling.

Tasting Note

Louis Jadot produces a Fixin with a brilliant yellow color. The wine shows powerful aromas of apple, with orange and apricot notes, and the wine has silky fruit in the mouth, with a firm, balanced and mellow acidity. Kept in good conditions, this Fixin is able to age 5 to 8 years.

Food Pairing

Currently, the Fixin is a perfect partner for fish. When older, it will be excellent with white meats in cream.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
