The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Talmettes 1er Cru contains whole bunch fruit this year. It has a delightful bouquet of red currant, wild strawberry, pressed rose petals and a touch of violet. This is one of the most aromatically charming wines from Bize. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and quite tensile from the start. The structured, saline finish brims with energy. - Neal Martin
Half the stems were left in the fermentation for this, incidentally. Bize’s 2008 Savigny-les-Beaune Les Talmettes – from a small cru adjacent to Vergelesses and sharing the southeastern exposition of the southern edge of that site – offers a bright, tart melange of sour cherry and red currant suffused with saliva-inducing salinity. Suggestions of floral perfume add inner-mouth allure to this very-2008 Pinot, and a bit of tannic roughness – no great impediment to its long finish – may well have dissipated with a bit more time elapsed post-bottling. I would expect this high-toned, high-strung Pinot to be worth following for 15 years. - David Schildknecht
