Domaine Pierre Gelin is the leading wine producer in the small village of Fixin (pronounced Fees-an). The family domaine was founded in 1925 by Pierre Gelin and is today in the hands of Pierres grandson, Pierre-Emmanuel. Pierre-Emmanuel farms organically and works to minimize the impact on the environment in both vineyard and cellar.
The family owns 32 acres in total including parcels in five of the Fixin premier crus and the monopole Clos Napolon. In 1961 Pierre also purchased vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin, including the monopole Clos de Meixvelle, Clos Prieur 1er cru, and the Grand Cru Clos de Bze.
The Bourgogne Rouge is sourced from vineyards in Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, and is matured for 18 months, partially in oak barrels and partially in stainless-steel tanks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
