Tasting Burgundy 2017 | Week Two | Simon Bize, de Courcel, Thomas Bouley, Chandon de Brailles & Hubert Lamy
November 12th 2018
What is quite surprising is that it takes 12 hours from Hampshire to my supper in Beaune, via the Eurostar. I think a flight from Heathrow next time is back on the agenda! Monday morning, the start of our second week of tasting, the sun is shining, the day is incredibly mild and I am ready for our first flight of 2017s at Domaine Simon Bize in Savigny, hosted by Chisa Bize. 22 ha of vines so a fairly big domaine, split 30% white and 70% red. Similar quantities to the 2014 vintage.
