Camille Savès Carte D'Or NV Grand Cru
The Savès family has lived in Bouzy since 1894. Agricultural engineer Eugène Savès founded the estate as a wine
grower when he married Anaïs Jolicoeur, the daughter of a wine producer in Bouzy. He soon realised he wanted to make the wine as well as grow the grapes and began to make Champagne from the grapes he grew. Since then, first Louis, then Camille and now Hervé have followed in their father’s footsteps. Hervé now tends a vineyard of about ten hectares on exclusively Grand Cru and Premier Cru terroirs in the Montagne de Reims.
CAMILLE SAVÈS BRUT CARTE D’OR NV GC BOUZY
The preparation and long ageing of this beautifully balanced cuvee produces Champagne with a vinous character and great intensity, reflecting its noble terroir.
The NV Brut Grand Cru Carte d’Or is richer, deeper and bigger than the Brut Premier Cru Carte Blanche. Here the Pinot speaks loud and clear. Spice, red berry, crushed flowers and savoury herbs all blossom in a big, broad wine loaded with depth. The flavours are slightly oxidative, which contributes to the wine’s sense of breadth.
75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay
Disgorgement date: February 2016
