Reviews 91 points John Gilman "The bouquet is superb this year, wafting from the glass in a mix of black cherries, black raspberries, venison, bonfire, Savigny fruitcake, stony soil elements and a spicy topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and quite elegant in profile (particularly for a young Grands Liards!), with a sappy core, good mineral undertow, fine-grained tannins and a long, complex and promising finish.

About Simon Bize

Domaine Simon Bize et Fils in Savigny-lès-Beaune stands as a beacon of underappreciated brilliance within the vast expanse of Burgundy. Established in 1890, the estate's 22 hectares are a compilation of some of Savigny-les-Beaune's most exceptional sites, from precisely located lieux-dits to the appellation's premier cru parcels, with a majority leaning towards the northern side closer to Pernand-Vergelesses.

Under the meticulous leadership of Chisa Bize, who trained with biodynamic luminary Anne-Claude Leflaive, the domaine has been gradually integrating biodynamic practices. Their most experimental parcel, Les Serpentières, along with Corton Charlemagne, exemplify the drive to cultivate even the most challenging plots biodynamically. Presently, five hectares are managed under this method, limited only by the capacity of their biodynamic preparations.

A unique feature of their winemaking process is the affinity for whole cluster fermentation for reds, often incorporating entire grape bunches, though this varies based on the cuvée of the season. The judicious use of oak, rarely surpassing 30%, ensures that the wine's terroir sings clearly. Their premier crus like Aux Guettes, Les Talmettes, and the mighty Aux Vergelesses benefit from minimal intervention: rare fining or filtration and limited new oak exposure, resulting in wines that are both plush and authentically Savigny-lès-Beaune in character.

Renowned for their wines' outstanding consistency, especially under Chisa's stewardship, Domaine Simon Bize’s offerings showcase immediate appeal while also possessing an uncanny ability to age gracefully. The harmony and longevity of their wines, from the Bourgogne Rouge Les Perrières to the Grand Cru Latricières-Chambertin, are testimonies to their unparalleled craftsmanship of Burgundy wines.
