2009 Burgundy Tasting Notes

Surprising and satisfying results from a recent blind tasting

2009 Simon Bize Les Fourneaux 1er cru Savigny-les-Beaune $50

My 2nd place wine, the group’s 1st

Dusty and closed on the nose with a little spice, a dark, serious, brooding sort of nose. On the palate this is quite tight, but the raw material is there. Black raspberries at times, then some watermelon peel and a flash of stemmy spice. All the components show up, but this needs time to knit together. It’s an intellectual joy tonight with succulence, length, and near perfect balance, but there is a lot more to come. 92 pts
