Wines from Fixin are typified by their robust, tannic, and sometimes “sauvage” character. This Fixin premier cru was completely de-stemmed and aged for 20-24 months in up to 25% new Burgundian pièce. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Les Hervelets often shows a bit more nuance and finesse than a typical Fixin wine.
WS91 - Wine Spectator
A linear, tightly wound style, featuring violet, cherry and raspberry flavors accented by spice and toasty oak. Intense and well-structured, with spice notes echoing on the sinewy finish. Like a thoroughbred in the starting gate. Best from 2021 through 2033. 50 cases imported.
