This site, just below the Bois de Noël (‘Forest of Christmas’) and on the border of Pernand-Vergelesses, is the top 1er Cru of Savigny, and one that looks like a Grand Cru in its elevation, gradient and it beautiful SE exposition. It is one of the great Burgundy sites that directly abuts the forest (i.e. no 1er Cru or villages “step-down”) on the upper side (Musigny, Chambertin, Corton and Latricèires are similar in this regard). The younger plots within the Bize holding were planted by the late Patrick Bize in the late 70’s, such is the formidable average age of these old vines.

"The 2021 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses unwinds in the glass with aromas of plums, red berries, sweet spices and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's thick and textural, with melting tannins and an orange-inflected finish. 91-94 pts" - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
"A cooler, airy and perfumed nose freely offers up aromas of the essence of red pinot fruit, newly turned earth and a pretty array of floral elements. The medium weight, focused and relatively powerful flavors possess an positively gorgeous texture while delivering excellent depth on the more persistent and better-balanced finale. This is lovely though as is usually the case, a wine that is going to require extended keeping. 90-93pts. Outstanding" - Allen Meadows, Burghound
