This is heavily reduced, in fact to the point that the nose is unreadable. By contrast there is good freshness and verve to the velvety, round and mineral-inflected flavors that ooze a fine and mouth coating dry extract that buffers the moderately firm, ripe and integrated tannins on the balanced finish. This is unusually generous for the appellation as the usual austerity and sturdy structure aren't present. In some, this is lovely if not exactly classic in style. Tasted: Apr 15, 2013. Drink: 2019+

Domain Simon Bize started in 1880 in Savigny les Beaune and it has been in the family ever since. Since 1972, Patrick Bize has been in charge and carried out years of planning to build a new cuverie, expand the cellars and purchase more land to the now 22 hectares. Quality, care and attention are key words both in the vineyard and winemaking.White grapes are processed as quickly as possible following harvest and lees contact is a very important part of the style. Maturation in barrel up to 30% new oak is for 6 to 12 months. Reds go into barrels that are 1 to 6 years old, new oak is rarely used, to preserve delicate Pinot Noir aromas.
