Vintage Score 1989 Burgundy Red - 16/20
Wine Characteristics :
The Fixin appellation, which received official recognition in 1936, produces both appellations Village and Premier Cru. Production is largely of reds (Pinot Noir) but there are some plots of white (Chardonnay). The reds are what are known as “winter wines” because they need to spend some time in bottle. High-colored, they are a brilliant deep purple or what the Burgundians call “deep mid-red”. The bouquet comprises flower scents (violet, peony), fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry, quince), animal scents, musk and pepper. Cherry-pit is also quite common. Often tannic and a little hard in their youth, with age the Fixin acquire a heightened and rounded attack and solid structure. Their fullness is remarkable and their texture delicate.
Fixin (pronounced “Fissin”) is situated in the Côte de Nuits region between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin. In 1860 it merged with the neighbouring hamlet of Fixey. As well as wine-cellars, attractions for visitors include the 10th century church of Saint-Antoine, the manor of La Perrière where once the monks of Cîteaux came to enjoy the good air and the good wine, François Rude’s famous statue in the Parc Noisot of Napoleon in the process of becoming immortal, a particularly handsome communal laundry and the slate-covered village breadoven. Here there are a thousand things to see, not to mention many welcoming wine cellars.
The Premiers Crus plots are on reasonably homogenous brown limestone soils with east to south-east exposures and at 350 to 380 metres of altitude. In some spots (Hervelets, for example) the soil is more marly. The remaining plots are on lower ground at the foot of the slopes and the soil is a mixture of limestone and marl.
Vintage description 1989 Burgundy :
The vines had exceptionally sunny weather but did not suffer from the summer drought thanks to the storms in mid-July. The harvest was early and in a good sanitary state. The yields were not always sufficiently controlled and resulted in red wines of varying quality, but generally 1989 was a great vintage. The red wines have a good level of intensity and are today characterised by their very soft tannins. There are also delightfully soft and elegant.
