Fixin is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France covering the communes of Brochon and Fixin which was first elevated to AOC status in December 1936. Still white wines and still red wines may be produced here. White wines can be made from either Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc. Red wines are made principally from Pinot Noir but the reds can have small quantities of the three white grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris) in them.
There are 6 'climats' in Fixin that qualify for Premier Cru status. These are Clos de la Perriere, Clos Napoleon, Clos du Chapitre, Les Miex Bas, Arvelets and Hervelets. Wine made from these plots can have the word Fixin followed by Premier Cru, followed by the name of the climat on the label.
