2020 Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet, Fixin 6x75cl

VM90
The 2020 Fixin Village is complex on the nose considering this is a Village Cru: redcurrant, briary, sous-bois and light truffle scents. This is very fragrant. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh with a dab of sour cherry on the finish. Delightful.

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Fixin, Rouge 6x75cl

A new find for Mr.Wheeler in the 2019 vintage and one we are pleased to follow since then; Domaine Livera is widely considered the “next Burgundian star” tellingly both by consumers of their... exceptional wines together with their winemaking contemporaries. The Livera family have been settled on the Domaine for almost 100 years, but Damien, who has been in charge for 13 years now, has taken the wines to a different level altogether. His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. Yet again, such a pretty wine and strong contender for our all-out best red buy of the last couple vintages. Lovely body and juicy, succulent black and red fruit with just a hint of spice; great salinity throughout a long finish, here's a cuvée having it all: approachable, thirst-quenching, yet serious and endowed with deep flavours for graceful ageing.
