DOMAINE SIMON BIZE

Under the stewardship of Patrick Bize, the Domaine became the reference point for Savigny-lès-Beaune. Patrick was an obsessive perfectionist and his meticulous care and attention translated to crystalline wines which offer tremendous value to Burgundy lovers.

Patrick’s tragic passing is still deeply felt, but it is a tremendous delight to see the winery in great shape under the leadership of Chisa, Patrick’s wife. The Domaine has continued to make joyful wines full of character, poise and understated elegance.

TASTING NOTES

From a tiny 0.3 hectare plot planted in 1936, the wine shows incredibly intensity with lifted aromatics of spring blossom and white pears underpinned by a firm, chalky minerality reflecting the sandy marl and limestone soils of this steep slope. The finish is long and concentrated with a lovely mouth-watering acidity. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Ripe and concentrated red and black fruit shows poise and restraint. The palate is open and perfumed with bright red fruit, roses and violets with savoury undercurrents of tea leaf and brown spices. The fruit is encased by velvety tannins and lifted by a lovely freshness and a long, concentrated finish. Drink from 2021.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

This wine has a delicate, somewhat reserved bouquet of citrus and white fruits. Bigger on the palate than the nose suggests, it has mouth-filling flavours of pears and apples with a lively freshness. Elegant with fine length, it will be delicious in a few years. Drink from 2020.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Pure grapefruit and stone fruit aromas abound on the nose but there is also great focus and definition. This carries through to the palate where pure, stone fruits mingle with more subtle white floral notes. There is great energy and persistence on the finish and while this wine will be delicious young, it has the capacity to age well for...

Domaine Simon Bize in Savigny-Les-Beaune has a reputation for producing wines which punch above their weight. The estate was established in 1868 by Simon Bize and is composed of 22 hectares of mainly old, low yielding vines including a parcel in Corton Charlemagne.

The wines of Domaine Simon Bize have long been a benchmark for the appellation of Savigny-les-Beaune, and have been favourites of ours for some time. The wines – both red and white – have always appealed for their charming nature and friendliness in youth, though with wine it is almost always the personal stories that leave their mark. 

We had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Chisa Bize at Armit’s Burgundy tasting in early 2016, and learning of her journey from Japan to the heart of Burgundy has brought the wines that much closer to our hearts. We learned of the romantic story of Patrick Bize and Chisa meeting in Japan, followed by an invitation for her to travel to Burgundy to work a harvest at the Domaine. Chisa and Patrick fell in love, and Chisa fell under Burgundy’s spell, choosing to move to France, marry Patrick and make wine with him. Unfortunately, this scenario changed in 2013 with Patrick’s tragic passing. However, Chisa Bize is a formidable woman, and is admirably forging ahead with running the estate on her own.

2014 is the first vintage she has made without Patrick, and having tasted the wines, it is safe to say that the estate is happily in very safe hands.
