Fixin is less well known than its famous neighbours on the Côte de Nuits but can compete with any of them. The soil is a cocktail of hard limestone for the bouquet, clay-limestone marl for powerful wine, and brown earth for subtlety.
The 40- to-50-year-old vines, are located in the hamlet of Fixey, connected to Fixin; one of the plots in the locality of Foussottes is right next to the magnificent 10th century Saint-Antoine church.
The other plot at La Place is located on the edge of the Grands Crus wine route. Acquired in 2006, the total area is 0.5682 hectare.
