Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from May 25 2016

Wine: 2013 Fixin "Clos de la Perrière"

Producer: Domaine Joliet Père et Fils

Comment: While aromatically similar to the Fixin "1er" this is both slightly riper and complex plus it displays a bit more floral character as well. There is much better mid-palate density to the mineral-driven and restrained medium-bodied flavors that deliver fine length on the dusty, long and more complex finish. I very much like the style as it's understated and balanced. Worth checking out.

Score: 91 Drink: 2021+
