Price (each): $55.00
The 2016 Fixin Vieilles Vignes is a blend of two parcels, one to the north that produces a heavier style and another to the south that makes a more elegant wine. Using 50% whole bunch with 20% new oak, it has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry and briary, well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite chalky in style with a focused, brisk, slightly short finish. Fine, though it is outshone by others within Mortet's line-up.
