2019 Domaine Simon Bize et Fils Les Talmettes, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, France
Les Talmettes is contiguous to Aux Vergelesses to the west, so it is south-facing. There are very few producers of Talmettes and was not produced as a single vineyard until 2007. Previously the wien was blended with Vergelesses but their was a new appellation rule that required it to bottle it as its own cru.
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.
