Fixin, Les Petits Crais, Jean Fournier - 2021

This new cuvée, made from two parcels well situated in the Fixin AOC, completes our range of wines from the north of the Côte de Nuits. It is a full-bodied wine, well marked by its deep terroir, composed of "Marnes du Lias". This type of soil is only found in this part of the Côte de Nuits. This results in a predominantly tannic wine, powerful, suitable for ageing, dominated by blackcurrant aromas, slightly mentholated.
