Fixin’s closest premier cru to Gevrey Chambertin, Clos du Chapitre is always an expressive wine. With deep dark berry fruit flavours, this has a feeling of breadth and volume, yet is restrained and elegant. Very good.
Burghound, January 2020,
Very ripe aromas include those of poached plum and black raspberry liqueur that are cut with spice and earth nuances. The opulent, suave and generously proportioned flavors possess excellent richness that carries over to the lively, delicious and moderately rustic finish. This isn't refined but it's really quite good. Drink 2028+
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.
