The Dufouleur family have been merchants since 1596, but it was very recently that
the new generation represented by Yvan & Yann decided to start distributing the
family estate wines. Yann looks after the export markets; Yvan does the winemaking.
The 33 hectares of vineyards extend from Fixin to Santenay and include exclusive
ownership of Fixin Clos du Chapitre Premier Cru.
The Fixin 1er cru 'Clos du Chapitre' is one of the five 1er crus of the Fixin appellation.
The property which was bought by the family in 1995 is completely surrounded by an
old dry stonewall. The deep clay, limestone and marl soils are similar to the Grand
Cru wines of the Côte de Nuits. The vines, which have an average age of 35 years,
are trained to the simple Guyot method. The vineyards are farmed using sustainable
farming methods, known as la lutte raisonnée in French, with the use of natural
organic products to protect the environment and preserve the characteristic of the
soil and subsoil. Two annual tillings take place, along with green harvests to limit
The grapes were manually harvested with selective pickings in the vineyard. A cool
maceration took place for one week, followed by a fermentation which lasted for two
weeks. The wine was aged in oak barrels, of which 1/3 was new oak for 13 months,
during which time the wine underwent a malolactic fermentation. The wine rested for
two months in vats prior to being bottled.
Complex notes of cedar and forest floor combine beautifully with intense aromas of
violets, bramble fruits and ripe wild raspberry. Expressive on the palate, with good
minerality, subtle spice and a balanced structure leading to a dry, firm finish.
A treat with red meats, game dishes and cheese.
