The Fixin appellation produces both village and Premier cru. The vast majority of production is Pinot noir. They are often likened to mini Gevreys. The village plots are mainly on lower ground at the foot of the slopes and the soil is a mixture of limestone and marl. During harvest, the grapes were first sorted in the vineyards, then sorted again on a conveyor belt upon arrival at the winery. The grapes were destemmed but left uncrushed and put into vats using gravity. Fermentation was carried out using only indigenous yeasts
