Spotlight on Savigny-Les-Beaune
The All-Star Cast: Simon Bize, Chandon de Briailles, & Chanterêves
Tomoko Kuriyama-Bott of Chanterêves calls Savigny-Les-Beaune a “modest appellation” — a region of Burgundy sometimes viewed as a sort of understudy to stars with names like Vosne-Romanée and Volnay. But she’s one of a handful of producers making stellar wines there — wines farmed biodynamically and made intentionally, wines with elegant fruit and a certain defined silkiness. These are masterpieces that deserve their own stage. Welcome to the wines of Simon Bize, Chandon de Briailles, and Chanterêves.
