Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2016 Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perrière includes 35% whole bunch fruit with 35% new oak. It has a clean and ripe, slightly loamy bouquet thanks to the whole bunch addition, fresh and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with a sharp opening. This is quite an angular Fixin, perhaps missing the roundness and the blue fruit component that I always appreciate in a Fixin. It pulls up just a little short. Hopefully it will gain more cohesion once in bottle.
