SIMON BIZE, SAVIGNY LES BEAUNE "SHIROKURO" BLANC DE NOIRS 2018
ABOUTIn Japanese, Shirokuro is an approximation of Blanc de Noirs, which is exactly what this wine is. It's a direct press of Pinot Noir, from 40 year old vines in Savigny-les-Beaune "Bourgeots," and it is truly a phenomenal wine. Very pretty in the glass, with just the barest touch of pink at the rim, this wine is full of blooming white flowers and white peach. In the mouth it is distinctly Burgundy, with cool white fruit and beautiful texture - clean, fresh and the barest suggestion of lacy tannin that one would expect from Pinot Noir made in the usual fashion. Overall, what comes through here is beauty fragility and finesse. This delicious Blanc de Noirs is made by Japanese winemaker Chisa Bize, who, along with Patrick Bize’s sister, Marielle has been crafting these amazing expressions since Patrick’s death in 2013. This is a rare and wonderful find. Amazing!
