Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    Les Fourneaux is the first premier cru as you enter the village of Savigny from Beaune and tends to be the most forward of the domaine’s premiers crus. Very perfumed with wild strawberry aromas. A very charming wine with lovely purity.

    The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Fournaux 1er Cru offers earthy, brambly red fruit on the nose, along with touches of undergrowth and bay leaf, all nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with mulberry and blackberry notes, soft in the mouth at first, yet the structure makes its presence felt toward the saline finish. Very fine and classic in style. 2020 - 2032

    Score: 89-91

    This is the first wine to display much reduction and it's enough to suppress the underlying fruit at present. There is more size, weight and richness if less minerality to the muscular medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a rustic, serious and sneaky long finish. Patience definitely advised. Drink 2029+

    Fourneaux is both a village and a premier cru parcel with the latter appellation occupying the top half of the site. This is a serious Savigny, if that's not an oxymoron since the village is known for the elegance of its wines. It has impressive focus and freshness, fine-grained tannins and a sappy, spicy finish. Drink 2021-2027

    Mid crimson. Riper on the nose than the Grands Liards. Smells rich and generous, which it is on the palate. Velvet-smooth tannins and deep, caressing and then a burst of freshness on the finish. Complete, delicious. Drink 2020-2027

Producer

Domaine Simon Bize et Fils

Domaine Simon Bize is a substantial estate by Burgundy standards, with 22 hectares mainly in the appellation of Savigny Lès Beaune and two fine grand cru parcels in Corton Charlemagne and Latricières Chambertin. It is now under the careful management of Chisa, the late Patrick Bize’s wife, and Marielle Grivot, Patrick’s sister. They like to continue his practice of whole bunch fermentation and gentle handling of the fruit during the vinification process. The result is always very stylish wines, which possess the sweetness of fruit and subtle core of tannins, which are such a character of the wines of Savigny.

Region

Savigny-lès-Beaune

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.
