1999 Simon Bize Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux Vergelesses 1er Cru - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune (10/1/2006)
The cork was not promising (rather wet and moldy on top...must be my cold and humid cellar), but the wine was beautiful. Initially a little closed, time brought out lots of lively red fruit and an appealing earthiness. Three hours after opening the wine is really blossoming with raspberry, floral, mineral and finishing cherry flavors. Very tasty Burgundy. Medium weight with realtively easy tannin.
