Gelin Fixin 2014
Domaine Gelin, Fixin: Fixin 2014. Grape variety 100% Pinot Noir: Alcohol 13% vol.
Harvested on September 18th, grapes in perfect health, vatted for 19 days with battonage twice a day. Aged for 22 months in oak barrels. A beautiful deep garnet-red colour.
The nose is immediate, superb, very pinot, very “classy”. Slightly spicy, it expresses original notes of candied oranges or orange liqueur. In the mouth, the tasting begins with discretion and finesse. Good acidity provides depth, stimulates the taste buds. The racy, assertive tannins, tamed by long, careful ageing, add to the wine’s power and produce a compact, textured wine. The wood of the ageing is perfectly blended with an almost zesty spicy note.
Perfect continuity means this wine, a blend from several terroirs, never disappoints, year after year. This is a wine for cellaring: maximum enjoyment is the reward of patience.
Food matching: Jugged hare, game birds, a Burgundy cheese platter.
Aging potential: 8/9 years
