While traveling in Burgundy, I visited with Patrick Bize of Domaine Simon Bize in Savigny-lès-Beaune and tasted his 2008 lineup. Most of Bize's sites lie on the north slope of Savigny's two hillsides; I provide tasting notes for his village wines and premiers crus below. The yields in 2008 were small here due to hail and rot, but the ripeness was good.
