Meo-Camuzet Frere et Soeur Fixin 2018 - Burgundy
Bottle size: 750ml
Maximum buy quantity no greater than 2 bottles.
Located north of Fixey, these are vineyard plots right at the foot of the hill, at the bottom of a combe ("le Clos" and "les Herbues"). A very fine environment, more worthy of premier cru status...
Two characteristics dominate this wine: it is extremely soft and extremely easy-drinking. It's less exuberant on the nose than the Marsannay, but more velvety on the palate, silkier and, believe it or not, very long. Overall, it has a lot of charm, and has won the hearts of numerous wine-lovers, including the most demanding.
Several plantings of different ages (25 years, 50 years), but the average age is quite high. A younger part of the vineyard produces quite big grapes and it is necessary to be quite strict here. Apart from that, the vineyard is well balanced. It matures slowly and benefits from being harvested late; that is not a problem as the grapes stand up well.
A slightly cooler if otherwise similar aromatic profile leads to attractively rich and velvet-textured flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the nicely lengthy finish that is also only mildly rustic. This offers fine quality for what it is.
