Madame Pierre Gelin

Fixin "Clos Napoleon Monopole"

Fixin "Clos du Chapitre Monopole"

Gevrey Chambertin

Mazis Chambertin

Chambertin Clos de Beze

Andre Molin, son-in-law of the late Pierre Gelin, creates beauty not only with his wines, but with poems, too. Many of his pieces find their themes in wine, naturally, and with the likes of Fixin "Clos du Chapitre" and Chambertin "Clos de Beze" for inspiration, his poems can be very good. Even better are the wines: the two Fixins offer excellent value in wines from the farthest-north of the Cote de Nuits communes, and the Gevrey, Mazis and Chambertin Clos de Beze present an ascending scale of quality that culminates in one of the greatest bottles of Burgundy available from any grower or estate.

This is the largest Domaine in Fixin and both of the Monopoles have their own cuveries within their walls.
