Bénigne Joliet presides over one of Burgundy’s most fascinating properties, the Clos de la Perrière, first established by the monks of Cîteaux in 1142. The impressive Manoir has over four hectares of this Monopole under vine, with different vine age (up to 85 years), exposures and soils bringing complexity. Bénigne uses 20% whole bunches and 15% new barrels, with a relatively long maturation period, in order to avoid the rustic aspects of some Fixin wines.

The palest of rosés made with the addition of 7% red wine from the great villages of Ambonnay and Bouzy lending a delicate copper tint. The nose is rich with yeast and brioche notes; red fruits (fresh strawberry and raspberry) not evident at first, increase with time in the glass. There is a similar profile on the palate with almost chalk/mineral and citrus notes and red fruits again increasing over time. A very elegant, subtle rosé, drinking beautifully now, but which I suspect will gain further weight over the next year or so. Simon Field MW - Champagne Buyer

Poor spring with difficult flowering, though this varied from one vineyard to another. Old vines suffered worse. The reds were later to flower, with better results, and for the first time were picked after the whites, which needed to be harvested quickly before rot set in. The balance of the whites has ended up quite similar to 2012, with the same acidity but the fruit more exuberant in style. One technical note on quality: Olivier presses his whites for much longer now, which intensifies the dry extract and will preserve longevity.
This is a thoroughly fine range from the young and enthusiastic Sylvain Loichet in 2010. The whites have their usual energy and pure fruit while the reds have been fine-tuned, with a slightly shorter time in vat producing far more elegant wines. This is becoming an exceptionally good address. Note also the two cuvées of Corton-Charlemagne from different parts of the hill.
