Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 87-89 (2018 Jan.)

A discreet application of wood sets off the more deeply pitched aromas of various dark berries, earth and soft humus nuances. Here too there is a lovely sense of energy to the intense and mineral-suffused flavors that offer sneaky good length if only average depth. This too should drink well young.

Vinous - Score: 90 (2019 Jun.)

The 2016 Fixin has a fresh and lively bouquet with earthy red berry fruit mixed with blood orange and a touch of pressed flowers. The palate is well balanced with a fleshy opening, nicely judged acidity with (again), blood orange and a pinch of Moroccan spice towards the lithe finish. You will find few better Fixin Village than this. Tasted at Flint Wines' Value Burgundy tasting.
