  1. Berthaut-Gerbet Fixin Les Crais 2016
    WA90
    VM90
    $51.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! (from alluvial soil with more stones, not to mention a cooler combe influence; 30% vendange entier; bottled in December; Berthaut noted that 80% of the buds were lost to frost but a good amount of second-generation grapes ripened, so she only lost 50% of her normal volume): Lovely deep color. Less fruit-driven than the basic village Fixin, showing more mineral and soil tones on the nose. Then plush, spicy and sweet, conveying a rather relaxed quality for a wine made mostly from second-generation grapes. An element of saline, stony minerality adds interest. With its very good mouth coverage and rather fine-grained dusty tannins, this is showing well already but it should offer some aging potential. - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

  2. Pierre Gelin Fixin 1er Cru Clos Napoleon 2015
    WS93
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! A dense, firmly wrought red, with cherry, currant, earth, iron and spice flavors framed by beefy tannins. Shows ample fruit, and the lasting impression is sweetness, so give this time. Best from 2021 through 2032. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Advocate

  3. Berthaut-Gerbet Fixin Les Clos 2015
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Amelie’s Berthaut-Gerbet Fixin Les Clos 2015 generated the same comments from us that we later read in reviews...'when was the last time you had a Fixin like this'?  Indeed her kinder, gentler take addresses the very issue that had plagued so many examples from this village in recent years.  According to the domaine, this 1 heactare site sits high on the hill at nearly the same level as the Premier Crus, and the vines here, which range from10-80 years old play like a more pedigreed site.  The funny thing is that, with several different reviews on the doamine that included the requisite Grand Crus and Premier Crus, this and the Hautes Cotes were not even mentioned.  That’s Burgundy for you
