Community Tasting Notes 45

    June 22, 2019 - Lean, stingy, stoney and acidic on opening. Alone, no fun; with food, quite good. Fruit flavors and aromas fill in somewhat over two nights, but never as generous and delicious as the 2007 half bottles we drank through a few years ago. Interesting vintage, in general; not sure where this wine is headed over the next few years. We'll see.

    May 27, 2019 - Dark cherries, earth. Quite tasty and balanced, but darker than expected. Not as complex or fine and pretty as the burgundies that really wow you.

    April 30, 2019 - Nose of rosewater, currants, very ripe strawberries and herb garden. Soft and silky on the palate. Medium lenght. Does get tired quite fast, best within the first 1-2 hours, then fading. Does not feel like one fot the longer run. Time to start drink these.

    January 22, 2019 - beautifully scented with rosewater, dried wood and dried cherry, dry, shows nice tension and grip, lots of mineral and earthy nuances which back dried raspberry and cherry flavors across the mid palate, there is lean power which connects all the elements, drinking fine now

    June 11, 2018 - 12 years later and still very primary. Nose is dominated by blood orange, ripe strawberries and hint of earth. Lots of unresolved tannins and acidity. It’s a sleeper of a wine

    (VERGELESSES Simon Bize) Simon Bize #2 Dear Friends, I told you last week how good the 2006 Simon Bize portfolio is and most of the wines would be considered very strong buys. The top two wines (the Vergelesses and Latricieres-Chambertin) are just not available and I’ve been trying to get a small allocation since last summer - we received so many inquiries asking for both of these (after Burghound came out last week) that I’m well aware the demand far outstrips the supply from Bize. The parcel below is very small - please exercise patience with Niki and Melisa. Please let us know how many bottles of each you are interested in and we will send you a confirmation in the next day or so. The prices should be about the same as in France: 2006 Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune “Aux Vergelesses” EXTREMELY LIMITED (this is one of the more exciting wines I tasted in Burgundy a few weeks ago - it’s really a breath of fresh air and a throwback to the 1950’s or 1960’s - to get Burgundy of this quality for $50-60 is just not the norm - especially with the 1.60 Euro disparity - an amazing red Burgundy) 2006 Simon Bize Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru EXTREMELY LIMITED Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Burg6420 Burg6430
