Ripe and fresh aromas are comprised by notes of plum, newly turned earth and a touch of the sauvage. Once again there is a sleek and relatively refined mouth feel to the delicious and lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that firm up quickly on the balanced if slightly rustic finale. Good quality here.
The 2015 Fixin showed better than the Marsannay Village, partially because it had just been racked, but I find more fruit expression here, more joie de vivre. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, bright red cherry and blackberry fruit with a pleasant grainy texture on the dense finish. This comes recommended. Jean-Nicolas Méo has overseen a négociant branch of Domaine Méo-Camuzet for several years now under "Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeurs." They can be well worth seeking out.(NM)
Ripe, succulent cherry nose. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, this is a simple and direct wine that is not very nuanced. The light tannins give some structure. Drinking Window 2017 - 2022.(SB)
The 2015 Fixin AC from the domaine had also been racked just the week before my tasting. The wine seemed to show more soil definition on both the nose and palate than the more fruit-driven Marsannay, and also seemed a bit less roasted in personality. The nose wafts from the glass in a mix of sweet dark berries, black cherries, dark soil tones, espresso and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite plush on the attack, with good length and grip on the well-balanced and modestly tannic finish. This should prove to be a fine example. (Drink between 2016-2035)
Good dark red. Aromas of medicinal black cherry, dark berries and licorice are lifted by a floral topnote. Nicely dense but quite dry and penetrating; nothing sweet about this 2015! Saline, backward and fairly dense, this is a distinctly cooler version of 2015.(ST)
