Very appealing pure dark fruit aromas, this Savigny balances intensity with texture. A wine with rounded and appealing tannins which finishes wonderfully fresh and clean. Not a wine for long-term ageing but will give huge pleasure.
This is a classic Savigny in character with an intensely earthy nose that also reflect notes of violets and plum that complement well the round, supple and delicious flavors that possess excellent complexity for a wine of this level, all wrapped in a firm but balanced finish. Lovely juice for what this is. Drink: 2016+.Comments: outstanding!
Domaine Bize is one of the most famous names in the Côte de Beaune and today, whilst continuing under the name of his father, the estate is run by his charmingly articulate son Patrick. Patrick claims his education in vine growing and wine making was not done at wine school but in the cellars of his father's friends whose names read like a who's who of wine; Henri Jayer, the Marquisd'Angerville, Aubert de Villaine of Romanée-Conti and so the list goes on... It is therefore nosurprise that in Patrick's wines one scents passion rather than the science of wine making.
The picturesque village of Savigny-lès-Beaune, just to the north of Beaune, is a relatively prolific producer in Burgundian terms. Less serious than its neighbours, Pommard and Volnay, these are nonethless delicious wines - perfumed, delicate and elegant. A tiny amount of white is produced.
