Low production. Exceedingly high quality. Produced with lower pressure but results in much, much joy. A light golden robe with not many bubbles due to the low pressure. Very creamy however. In that good way. Quite mineral on the nose with an abundance of floral scents. Croissants and orange peel with a schmear of honey. Those citrus aromas really start to take over after time in the glass.
Pure Grand Cru Chardonnay from Cramant in the Côte des Blancs. Consisting of 35/65 of the 2014 and 2015 vintages and disgorged in 2020 with an Extra Brut dosage of 3 g/l. This is one of those non vintage bottles that makes you reconsider not aging them. It’s so clear that this will continue to grow and blossom and be even more stunning a few years down the road.
Subtle and soft with high acid. Saline precision and tension for days. So generous on the palate even at this youthful point in its journey. Fresh citrus fruits tickle the tongue while herbs hold your attention. Long finish with a bite of spice. Will be excellent if you have patience and hold. Or you could be like me and drink now. — 19 days ago
On s’ouvre un autre délicieux Chassagne Villages 2017 de Bernard Moreau. Toujours aussi savoureux. Un petit côté citronné et salin au nez, mais finement, avec une touche beurrée. La bouche est généreuse, charmante, une certaine rondeur avec une touche de richesse, mais aussi avec suffisamment de tension appuyée et qui donne du corps au vin tout en ayant une belle fraîcheur et une longueur fort appréciable, toute une réussite pour un Villages. 91-92
Once again another great bottle if this decently priced Chassagne Villages. Some lemon, touch of butter nd definitely a salinity on the nose and palate. A generous and chrming wine with some roundness and richness yet with enough acidity to make it a great balance, good length too, delicious simply and now my 4th bottle in the last year and they were all spot on. — 3 days ago
Talmettes is on a limestone parcel and therefore gives very mineral wines, almost like white ones.
This is in indeed very stony and mineral, but has flesh and lots of red fruit together with dollops of rose fanée and spices. Medium bodied, very complex and elegant, just about ready but no rush. A fine bottle very much to our taste. — 10 days ago
Expressive bouquet: flowers, strawberry, chocolate, fig, animal farm, mushrooms, wet wool and vanilla. Well balanced, good acidity, evolving taste. Flavours of milk chocolate with wild strawberry and sweet tobacco in the finish. Quaffable wine with persistent aftertaste. Great wine.
