Dom. Denis Berthaut Fixin ‘Les Crais’ 2011
“3 Most Outstanding Burgundy Releases” – Neil Martin @ RobertParker.com
“The 25 Essential Wines of 2016” – Punch Magazine
The Fixin region is arguably the most under rated, under priced & overlooked area of Burgundy! Nestled right next to the more prestigious Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin is traditionally known for robust, long lived wines.
The tiny ‘Les Crais’ block produces this single cuvee from old vines planted in 1946.
Berthaut wines show great finesse & refinement & are the finest & most elegant wines from Burgundys’ Fixin region.
Fixin wines are frankly one of the best kept secrets in Burgundy with their low yielding vines giving very concentrated fruit flavours.
Burgundy has been blessed with a string of four excellent vintages in a row – 2011 was one of them!
Great quality & value!
