2007 Bize Simon, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux VergelessesJan. 2011
Pretty red aromas. Like the 2009 the flavours are very mineral, tannin starts as merely a background impression, though comes to the fore in the mid-palate, it seems only as part of a general crescendo of flavour leaching from every nook and cranny of your mouth. Excellent!
2007 Potel Nicolas, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux VergelessesJul. 2009
November bottling. A rounder, softer and redder nose than the previous wines – shows good density. Fresh acidity, plenty of tannin showing towards the finish – with just a hint of astringency. This is more seriously structured but it has fine fruit to compliment. Very good – but leave most of your bottles in the cellar.
1990 Bize Simon, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux VergelessesNov. 2004
Medium colour with some amber at the rim. Oaky, chocolaty, completely secondary nose – very nice. The palate is lovely, still wrapped in tannin with good acidity and sweet fruit. No hard edges, this was lovely.
2001 Bize Simon, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux VergelessesMar. 2003
More ruby than cherry colour. Reticent nose again. Very good acidity and tannin which dominate the wine somewhat. Nice fruit though so still good.
