Burgundy, FRANCE
$210. 00
$2520.00 Dozen
ABV: 13%
Closure: Cork

Domaine Simon Bize et Fils has to be one of the best kept secrets in Burgundy today. Famed for producing wines with impressive capacity for cellaring, under the care of Chisa Bize the wines are also more dynamic and show greater aromatic detail. The Domaine has some of the oldest average vine age anywhere in the Cote d'Or, and Chisa practices her amalgam of organics and biodynamics coined as "Bize-dynamics". Yields are kept low, and winemaking utilises a high percentage of whole-cluster fermentation.

Other Reviews....
The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Marconnets 1er Cru has one of the finest bouquets from Bize’s 2018s, featuring pure black cherry, bilberry and pressed iris aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle tannins, crisp black fruit laced with black pepper and a harmonious finish. Good potential. Drink 2021 - 2034.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Glowing fresh purple with very lively fruit, a sensual deep raspberry on the nose. Then in the mouth it is altogether tighter without losing this intensity of fruit and a really fine perfumed finish. It is a ripe style of fruit but a balanced structure and exceptionally long.
