A deep nose of Morello cherries, this wine focuses on sweet, dark black fruits with hints of mocha and chocolate. An intense style, with tightly integrated tannic structure, finishing with a lively, cool, racy freshness.
An unusually spicy nose offers up a pretty and layered blend of plum, dark cherry and plenty of warm earth character that continues onto the rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that also display both good depth and length on the firm and balanced finish that exhibit only a trace of rusticity.

The 2016 Fixin 1er Cru Clos du Chapitre was very tight on the nose and needed more encouragement in the glass compared to the village cru. The palate is medium-bodied, rounded in texture, plump in the mouth with mulberry and dark plum toward the finish. Quite sensual for a Fixin, this is a well-crafted Fixin that will benefit from a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2020-2028
Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, blueberry and chocolate. Dense, thick wine with strong soil tones and a saline high-pH character, with primary fruit in the background today. An ultraripe version of this vineyard but still maintains adequate acidity and finishes with a firm tannic spine.
When Jean-Nicolas Méo arrived in 1989 he had very big shoes to fill. Henri Jayer, arguably Burgundy’s preeminent vigneron, had managed the domaine for the previous four decades under a share-cropping agreement with the Méo family. Since then Jean-Nicolas has more than met the challenge. Following meticulous viticultural and winemaking practices he creates wonderful wines with fine levels of concentration, and today, almost three decades since his ascension, it ranks in the upper echelons of the Burgundy firmament. The majority of wines are red, ranging from Bougogne Rouge up to their ultra-famous Cros Parantoux and outstanding Richebourg. But Jean-Nicolas also makes a miniscule production of white wine. He began planting the Chardonnay for his Clos St. Philibert on steep slopes overlooking Nuit St. Georges over 25 years ago from carefully selected Chardonnay clones. Domaine Méo-Camuzet has expanded its line of 'vins de négoce' in recent years. These wines are bottled under the 'Méo-Camuzet Frères et Soeurs' label.
Fixin is an appellation next door to Gevrey Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. There are five Fixin Premier Cru vineyards situated in the western side of the commune.
