I jumped on this offer when I saw it. This is one of the best Burgundy deals I've come across this year.
Simon-Bize has been a fixture of our offers for over a decade. When it comes to honest and soulful Burgundy, Simon-Bize is one of the first producers that we reach for.
To be able to offer one of their top Savigny bottlings at such sharp pricing only sweetens the deal. For context, the only other price for the 2014 Vergelesses in the country is $100, and current vintages sell for $90-100.
Today, I'm happy to offer Simon-Bize's 2014 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses for $76.95 per bottle and $71.95 in 4-packs.
Out of Simon Bize's Savigny wines, Vergelesses is always the most structured. Along with La Dominode, Vergelesses is Savigny's top site. It serves as the perfect summary of Bize's style: It has a stony core, loads of finesse, and just the right amount of wildness.
In 2014, you will find Vergelesses rendered with the utmost clarity. Bize simply nailed the 2014 vintage, and Vergelesses represents a highlight. The wine offers so much complexity and saturating minerality.
When it comes to soulful and long aging wines, Simon Bize always delivers. The balance, detail, and concentration of the 2014 Vergelesses promises a fascinating evolution.
Deals on Burgundies like this don't come along very often, and they never last for long. This is a top 1er Cru from a time-tested producer at the price of many Bourgogne Rouges. Bize turns out some of the most authentic and thoughtful wines we know. Do not miss this.

Burghound: "There is a definite restraint to the dark currant suffused nose that displays hints of plum, floral and earth. There is excellent power and punch to the robust and tautly muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess fine precision on the firm, mineral-driven and admirably well-concentrated finish. I like both the overall sense of balance as well as the excellent length though note well that this serious effort is also going to require patience"
