Appellation: Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France. Fixin Appellation.

Abutting Communes: Brochon to the south and Couchey to the north.

Location: The commune is an consolidation of two communes, Fixey and Fixin. The two villages are now part of the same sprawl, originally being a few hundred meters apart, with Fixey being further up the slope and to the north. Fixin is the northern most commune in the Cotes de Nuits. The appellation is roughly square with the premier crus huddled together up-slope at the southern end. This is just north of the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. Fixin is one of five communes allowed to market wine or sell its wines under the name of Cote de Nuits Villages.

Vineyards: 195 Acres (78 ha) produce better wines sold as Fixin (of which 3 acres (1.2ha) are white). The appellation Fixin exists for both red and white wine. Virtually no white comes to the USA. The premier cru vineyards covers 55 acres (22.35h) and produce 7500 cases on average annually.
