Domaine Huguenot Fixin 'Petits Crais' by Phillippe Huguenot

The Region

Fixin ('fee-son') is an appellation in the Côte de Nuits, the romantic heartland of red wine in Burgundy. It adjoins Gevrey-Chambertin and the wines are a similar style and quality to its famous neighbour, without the associated price.

 

The Winemaker

It’s a father and son affair at Domaine Huguenot with son Phillippe taking over the reins from Jean-Louis. They work organically on small, fragmented parcels of land in Marsannay, Fixin and Gevrey Chambertin where they’ve been making wine for 10 generations. Since becoming organic in ‘07 they have been at the mercy of the Mother Nature but Phillippe’s wife, Valerie, told us “there has been an undeniable increase in quality.”

 

The Wine

A bright and fragile crimson colour is the hallmark of fine Côte de Nuits Pinot such as this. With an enveloping nose of violets and cranberry, primary flavours of ripe wild strawberry and a distinct earthiness, this is a classic, light and inviting Burgundy red.

 

The Food Match

Côte de Nuits and duck is the classic food pairing but since it’s summer, simply spread some chicken liver pater on lightly buttered toast fingers, sit back and enjoy the sensation.

Press Reviews

92 Points - Tomás Clancy, Sunday Business Post

“Quite a “big” mouthful, with lashings of pure fruit. Evidence of oak is pretty overt but the wine retains its balance and style.” Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

“Great colour, plus great fruit intensity and freshness with plenty of more-ish morello and a creamy oak-derived palate.” Martin Moran, The Sunday Times.
