This venerable 13-hectare estate has been around for over a century, as it was created in 1925 by Pierre Gelin. Pierre was followed by his son Stephen in 1969. The family estate is now managed by Pierre-Emmanuel Gelin since 2000, who transitioned the estate to organic farming.
Located in the village of Fixin, the vineyards are divided between Fixin and Gevrey Chambertin, with two monopoles: Fixin 1er Cru Clos Napoléon and Gevrey Chambertin Clos Meixvelle.
Owned by the Gelin family since 1952, Clos Meixvelle is in the center of Gevrey Chambertin (meix meaning middle and Velle meaning village in old French). Surrounded by a wall that creates a microclimate, this 50-year-old vineyard facing east creates generous wines with nice flesh.
