Simon Bize Savigny les Beaune Rouge Les Talmettes 1er Cru 2017

Simon Bize Savigny les Beaune Rouge Les Talmettes 1er Cru 2017

100% Pinot Noir. It could be said that we drink more wines from this estate than any in Burgundy. The reason is that their range is so diverse and incredibly well-made that from one night to the next, and for weeks straight, you can drink wines that will fascinate you with their diversity and perfect craftsmanship. They are also some of the most profound wines made in what most consider a secondary appellation in the Côte d’Or, Savigny-les-Beaune. The wines at this domaine find a level of Savigny-les-Beaune that many may think not possible with this appellation. Domaine Simon Bize was under the direction of Patrick Bize for 20 years or so. Sadly, during the harvest of 2013, Patrick unexpectedly passed away, at age 60. The future of this estate is somewhat unknown, but once you meet his wife, Chisa Bize, you know that the estate is the good hands. She has long been quietly involved with Patrick along the way, encouraging him to the direction of organic and biodynamic farming, principles that have been quietly applied to the estate for years. Also, Nicolas Gordo, Patrick’s long-time winemaker, has been overseeing the cellar work for many years and while the wines of the domaine will no longer have Patrick’s finishing touch, they were left in very capable hands. So far, what we’ve seen coming could even, dare we say, eclipse what has been achieved in the past. The vines for Les Talmettes were planted in 1968 and 1978 on clay and limestone soils. Whole-cluster pressing, wild yeasts fermentation, and minimal new oak aging (maximum 20% new) this wine is absolutely fantastic. Floral, aromatic, and charming this is what Simon Bize is all about.

Tasting Notes
"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
