"A peppery hint of oak appears on the otherwise shy nose, followed by a luscious sense of toast and cherry. That pepperiness is even more apparent on the almost sumptuously rounded body. There is black cherry ripeness, the supple web of tannin and the ripe freshness that surrounds and pervades everything, but that peppery verve shimmers deliciously with its spiciness to highlight the cherry aromatics.”

Domaine Joliet in Fixin is just north of Gevrey-Chambertin, whose old-vine bottlings are receiving critical acclaim and interest from collectors. There are certain vineyard sites up and down the Côte d’Or in Burgundy which have been recognised for centuries as being outstanding locations. The Cistercian monks valued the Clos de la Perrière as a top site in all of Burgundy and Joliet continues to make wines in the same cellar built by the monks in 1142. The historic, vaulted cellar contains an enormous vertical press, also from 1142, which Joliet’s grandfather used until 1959.
Bénigne Joliet’s family purchased the Clos de la Perrière in 1853, making Bénigne the sixth generation to own the five-hectare monopole domaine in Fixin. Because of the inheritance laws in France, the vineyard was fragmented among his ancestors over the years. His great grandfather and grandfather used to sell off the grapes and juice. In recent history, his father was the first to bottle under the domaine name in the 1970’s. His father made wine in the same way every year and did not account for vintage variances, so the quality fluctuated. Bénigne worked with his father for ten years and in 2004 came to the conclusion that he wanted to purchase back the entire Clos from his family (aunts, uncles, and cousins) with the goal of making the Clos de la Perrière a reverential wine once again.
