Domaine Marguerite Carillon’s 2018 Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Talmettes’ is beyond divine. The nose is the beginning of the wonderful promise of freshness and purity with its notes of lemon, mirabelle, and hazelnut. The palate allows for the full expression of the mirabelle that is framed by nutty, oaky, smoky, succulence which is further heighted through the ripe lemon freshness. It is wonderful explanation of concentrated balance.
