Notes from Winebow:

"Domaine Pierre Gelin is the leading wine producer in the small village of Fixin (pronounced “Fees-an”).  The family domaine was founded in 1925 by Pierre Gelin. The family owns 32 acres in total including parcels in five Fixin premier crus and the monopole of Clos Napoléon. In 1961 Pierre also purchased vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin including the monopole Clos de Meixvelle, Clos Prieur 1er cru, and the Grand Cru Clos de Bèze. 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. This Fixin rouge comes from vines planted between 1968 and 1984. Grapes are completely de-stemmed and only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The wine was matured for 20 to 24 months in used Burgundian pièce. Bottled unfined and unfiltered."
