Founded in 1868, Domaine Simon Bize forged an enviable reputation during the 1970s under the widely admired Patrick Bize. Since his death in 2013, the estate has been run by Patrick’s wife Chisa, who has continued the domaine’s long tradition of crafting time-defying Pinot Noirs and crystalline Chardonnays that are the reference point for Savigny-lès-Beaune.
A student of biodynamic pioneer Anne-Claude Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet, Chisa uses an amalgam of organics and biodynamics – coined as “Bize-dynamics” – to farm 22ha of vineyards across Savigny-lès-Beaune, including six 1er Crus and Grand Cru parcels in Corton-Charlemagne and Latricières-Chambertin.
Bize follows the practice of working with whole bunches during vinification, resulting in vividly fruity wines with gorgeous aromas and exquisite freshness, which develop increasing complexity for decades after they are made.
