About this wine:
Domaine Pierre Gelin is the leading wine producer in the small village of Fixin (pronounced “Fees-an”). The family domaine was founded in 1925 by Pierre Gelin and is today in the hands of Pierre’s grandson, Pierre-Emmanuel. Pierre-Emmanuel farms organically and works to minimize the impact on the environment in both vineyard and cellar.

The family owns 32 acres in total including parcels in five Fixin premier crus and the monopole of Clos Napoléon. In 1961 Pierre also purchased vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin including the monopole Clos de Meixvelle, Clos Prieur 1er cru, and the Grand Cru Clos de Bèze.

The Bourgogne Rouge is sourced from vineyards in Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, and is matured for 18 months, partially in oak barrels and partially in stainless-steel tanks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes:
Wines from Fixin are typified by their robust, tannic, and sometimes “sauvage” character. Soils towards the bottom of the hill tend to be a deeper and heavier mixture of limestone mixed with clay, yielding wines that are beefy and a bit rougher. The premier crus sit further up the hill on homogenous brown limestone and often display more minerality and finesse.

Food Pairing:
Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.

Ratings & Reviews

Burgundy Report:
The pinot here from Fixin, 70% destemmed. Yes, a little dark oak spice but also there’s some good red fruit. More direct and structured but juicily balanced with energetically flavoured. I’d still keep it 2 years in the cellar before attacking but there’s a lot of wine in this glass and the finishing fruit is lovely!!

Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"A ripe nose expresses notes of various red berries, earth and a floral top note. There is both good volume and energy to the delicious middle weight flavors that conclude in a refreshing finish." (Jan 2022)
