Suggestion from May 04 2016
Wine: 2008 Savigny-lès-Beaune "Les Vergelesses" 1er
Producer: Domaine Simon Bize et Fils
Comment: Here too there is a touch of post-bottling sulfur that should not be an issue for more than a few months. A notably more elegant aromatic profile offers notes of white flower, pear and a trace of wood spice that merges into rich and relatively generous medium-bodied flavors where a discreet hint of minerality surfaces on the attractively complex and lingering finish. This is recommended.
