Domaine Joliet Fixin Premier Cru 2013
Joliet is best known for his Monopole Fixin Premier Cru “Clos de la Perriere” which to some is of “Grand Cru” stature: “Wines from Clos de la Perrière were, for generations, regarded among the greatest of all Burgundy; only Chambertin and Clos de Bèze held the same status.” – Bill Nanson, The Finest Wines of Burgundy.
But Joliet also bottles a “Fixin Premier Cru” label that is rarely available or seen and is at least half the price of the Monopole. I tried this wine recently next to the Monopole and it really shined. A true opportunity for Burgundy hunters!
“...there is good detail and a lovely mouthfeel to the detailed and lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of verve on the ever-so-mildly rustic and saline finish.” - Burghound
