Domaine Molin - FixinEcocert Organic Certified
Family estate created in 1987 by Armelle and Jean-Michel Molin. It consists of 7 hectares with regional, villages, 1er crus and grands crus. There are 3 colours, Rosé, White and Red. The tradition remains very present while combining today's methods. After the arrival of their son Alexandre (in 2004) on the farm, the organic conversion was started and the certification obtained in 2010.
The vines are partially grassed to allow the fauna and flora to develop and thus participate in the regulation of diseases and "useful" insects.
Weedkillers and chemicals are replaced by natural products, ploughing, mowing...
The winery also produced some Mazy Chambertin Grand cru as well as some Aligoté
The Village of Fixin
Fixin is a small village on the Côte de nuit located between Gevrey Chambretin and Marsannay.
It represents about 101 hectares with 6% white wine and 94% red wine. Fixin and Fixin 1er cru are produced there. The grape varieties as in all the côte de nuit are Chardonnay and pinot noir.
Its vineyards, located on a clay-limestone soil with marl, are mostly exposed to the east, an exposure that makes the quality of the great Burgundies.
Why Working with Domaine Molin
I have been drinking the red Fixin from domaine Molin for quite some time thanks to one of my friend who introduced me to it. One day i asked myself if it was at all exported. I contacted the winery the next day and understood that it was never exported. I offer them my service and this is how we started to work together. It took some time because that happen fall 2019, just before the 25% airbus tarif in the US and also just before the covid 19 worldwide pandemic happen. We reallly started to work together spring 2021.
