Domaine Simon Bize in Savigny-les-Beaune produces beautiful wines from Savigny’s terroirs, but is a bit overlooked as regards the grands crus, where few know its Latricieres-Chambertin or the perhaps even lesser-known Corton-Charlemagne.

As one of the top Corton-Charlemagnes uniquely from the Pernand-Vergelesses side of the appellation, it has a different stance to wines from the warmer terroirs on the southern side of the famous hill.
