Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from January 20 2021

Wine: 2018 Fixin "Clos de la Perrière"

Producer: Domaine Joliet Père et Fils

Comment: An admirably discreet application of wood sets off the liqueur-like aromas of plum, spice and warm earth. There is excellent intensity to the powerful, dense and very serious medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the firm, palate coating and youthfully austere finale. This is potentially outstanding but is a wine that will require at least 5-ish or so years of patience and reward 12+.

Score: 90-93 Drink: 2030+
