Denis Mortet Fixin Vieilles Vignes 2019



This domaine has long produced Fixin from a tiny, 0.32-hectare single parcel in Champs Pennebaut, a terroir located midway up the hill on the Marsannay side of the villageRecently Mortet also purchased a parcel of old vines (60-70 years old) in the southern part of Fixin, on the border of the Gevrey AOC in a vineyard called Les Champs de Charmes. From 2014, this parcel has been a part of the blend. Both sites have the classic clay/limestone soils of the Côte d’Or, although the northern soils are considerably darker.

Five-star wine The original Mortet vineyard was Champ Pennebaut, in black soil, to which since 2014 has been added Champs des Charmes, on sand and little stones, which has brought fruit and elegance. 70% whole bunch, the recipe for this wine since 2015. Fine imperial purple, old vines millerand berries, beautifully ripe dark fruit notes, 20 hl/ha with a fresher finish to stop it becoming jammy. 90-93 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Outstanding, top value Once again, there is a lovely freshness to the distinctly cool aromas of earth, the sauvage, a plethora of floral elements and essence of red currant. There is terrific vibrancy to the tension-filled medium weight flavors that brim with minerality on the highly refreshing finish that is sufficiently rich and pliant that this could be enjoyed after only a few years of bottle age. A quality Fixin villages that is worth checking out. 89-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
