2019 Simon Bize Bourgogne Les Perrieres Rouge
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.
The 2019 Bourgogne Les Perrières is beautiful, soaring from the glass with scents of rose petals, red berries and spices. Medium-bodied, sapid and perfumed, it's lively and charming, with powdery tannins and a long, lively finish. This is just irresistible. Drink 2020 - 2033.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge Les Perrières offers slightly rustic dark berry fruit on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins, good density and bell pepper notes enlivening the finish. Drink 2021-2024.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Glowing purple with a spectacular bouquet, more about density than ripeness. Heavenly with a weight of ripe, but fresh raspberry fruit, which fills the palate and beyond, there must be a great pinot selection in the vineyard.
