This is also quite spicy with a lovely nose of dark cherry, violets and plum. There is more volume and power to the middle weight plus flavors that also display enough finishing dryness to be of concern. Once again this may age out but I worry that the balance will never be ideal.
This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
