2014 Fixin: We have been making this wine under a long term contract since 1999 and there always seems to be a poached pear quality to the wine; a coincidence that there is a pear tree in the vineyard?

October 1, 201690 From a small vineyard in the north of the Côte de Nuits, this is a rare white wine in a red-wine region. Lightly toasty, it has spice, pear flavors and perfumed acidity. It's bright and crisp, ending with lively acidity.
June 15, 201688 A cool, pure and airy nose offers up hints of grapefruit, earth, tea and green apple. There is solid punch to the more mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess an attractive mouth feel while delivering solid persistence on the ever-so-mildly austere finale. A classic Fixin blanc.
