Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
92-94 WA / 92-94 VM
Les Talmettes is contiguous to Aux Vergelesses to the west, so it is south-facing. The Bize parcel of Talmettes is 0.80 hectare and planted in 1968 and 1978. The parcel is steep at the top, with a little sand mixed into a clay-limestone based soil. Protected from the winds blowing in from the north, Les Talmettesprovides a characteristically softer wine than that of its “twin” Les Vergelesses. There are very few producers of Talmettes and it was not produced as a single vineyard until 2007.
The 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Talmettes wafts from the glass with scents of rose petals, peonies, exotic spices and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, it's concentrated and gourmand, with a succulent core of fruit, ultra-refined tannins and a long, penetrating finish.--William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
