Fixin Crais de Chêne 2016
Fixin can be found next to Gevrey-Chambertin and offers great value to alternative explorers. The 2016 vintage was a challenging one for Burgundy leading to limited availability across the region. René Bouvier’s Fixin Crais de Chêne 2016 is lighter than the dark and moody 2015, displaying red forest fruits, boiled sweets and fresh herbs. All-in-all this has made it a far more summery red than it is in most years. Serve this charmingly rustic red with baba ganoush, salmon curries or fresh tomato pasta.
Domaine René Bouvier has owned vineyards in the Côte de Nuits for four generations moving from Marsannay towards Gevrey-Chambertin. Now run by Bernard Bouvier, the grapes are hand-harvested from extremely low-yielding, organically-farmed vines. His wines, which are aged in small oak barrels, tend to have an innate power to them and a real sense of depth.
