Domaine Pierre Gelin Fixin 2013
The FIXIN appellation, which received official recognition in 1936. The reds, called "winter wines", are high-coloured with a brilliant deep purple colour. The bouquet comprises flower scents (violet peony), fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry, quince), animal scents, musk and pepper. Cherry-pits is also quite common. Often tannic and a little hard in their youth, the Fixin acquire a heightened and rounded attack and solid structure. Their fullness is remarkable and their texture delicate. Serving suggestions: Masculine yet delicate, its tannic structure makes it a worthy partner with braised pork, beef, poultry stews including their Indian variants (curry, tandoori). However, the delicacy of its aromas and its finish make inventive combinations such as paella, tapas or spring-rolls.
