Domaine Huguenot Fixin 'Petits Crais'

red wine of real calibre from the Cote de Nuits. Wonderfully smooth, surprisingly robust and cut with a dash of spice, this is a tantalisingly warm and intense Pinot.

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.

Domaine Huguenot

The Côte de Nuits extends from the south of Dijon south of Nuits Saint-Georges: 60 kilometers in length and 650 meters in average width. The hillside, oriented south-east and sometimes sloping, resembles a mosaic rhythmic by the geometry of the plots and enclosures and punctuated by villages with houses of stone. It contains most of the great red wines of Burgundy and very few white wines. Our domain extends today on 23 hectares in Côte de Nuits
