Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Fixin Vieille Vigne 2015 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
While there is ample wood and menthol influence here as well, the more floral-inflected nose possesses slightly fresher fruit. There is both more volume and a bit more energy as well to the firm but sleek middle weight flavors that also display a touch of youthful austerity on the longer and more complex finale.
Character of the wine
Although full and generous at the same time, our Fixin "Fondemens" will surprise by its crimson and steady color. Its fruity nose reminds a red fruit coulis, and in mouth it will amaze by its greediness and its frankness characteristic of Pinot Noir. They have a good acid content and are endowed with a solidity and substance which places them among wines that are best laid down for a certain time.
When young they possess animal aromas suggestive of pelts and musk. These are ample wines which develop their bouquet over time as they mature.
