The renowned Clos du Chapitre – one of only five premier cru sites in Fixin – is the jewel in the Dufouleur family’s crown, producing a profoundly elegant and complex wine.
Located just north of Gevrey Chambertin on a sloping plot at over 300m, the fruit from these 70 year old Pinot Noir vines is hand-sorted, carefully fermented for a month then aged in oak for 12 months, with final assembly over 3 months in steel. The result is a deep and complex wine, with aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, and blueberry, truffles and liquorice, developing with age more earthy tones of leather, game and cigar box.
A sublime wine, rich and powerfully structured but with supreme elegance, peak drinking is 7 to 12 years from vintage once properly stored.
