2017 Simon Bize Bourgogne blanc les Champlains Bourgogne
The Bourgogne Blanc les Champlains is practically Simon Bize's entry-level wine, but it already has a good portion of character and complexity. Unusual for a Burgunder, it is not only made from Chardonnay, but always contains a few percent of Pinot Gris. Nevertheless, it is a very typical Burgundy, characterised by the stony terroir. Fermented spontaneously and matured in oak barrels for at least six months, this wine has great complexity. On the nose minerality, citrus, and some yogurt. Ginger, salted lemon, and orange peel on the palate. Well-integrated acidity and a full body round off the Blanc le Champlains. Goes particularly well with buttery sauces, mushroom dishes, and shellfish.
Domaine Simon Bize in Savigny-lès-Beaune has been making great, but still affordable Burgundy wines for many years. The high reputation of the estate is based on the pioneering work of Patrick Bize, who put the family winery on the list of the best producers of the Côte de Beaune. After Patrick's death, his wife Chisa continues to run the winery just as ambitiously and with the same love for detail. It' very difficult to find better wines for a similar price in the heartland of Burgundy.
