Domaine Michel Magnien Fixin
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Domaine Michel Magnien has evolved into a Burgundy producer of a singular style and philosophy from cellars located in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis. In 1993, Frédéric Magnien persuaded his father Michel to begin domaine bottling. The domaine is now certified biodynamic by Demeter and the wines are produced without the use of new oak.
Fixin is a quiet village sitting at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, just a short half-hour drive from the center of Dijon. Michel Magnien’s Fixin comes from two vineyards on the east-facing mid-slope, one on the border of Couchey, the other on the border of Brochon. The wine was aged entirely in used Burgundian pièce.
Wines from Fixin are typified by their robust, tannic, and sometimes “sauvage” character. Soils towards the bottom of the hill tend to be a deeper and heavier mixture of limestone mixed with clay where wines tend to be beefy and a bit rougher. The premier crus sit further
up the hill on homogenous brown limestone and often display more minerality and finesse
