Camille Savès Brut Carte Blanche NV Premier 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 BLANCHE NV 1ER CRU
75% Pinot Noir from Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne Grand Cru terroirs. 25% Chardonnay from Tauxières 1er Cru. Traditional Champagne with a fresh full bodied flavour which represents the taste and style of the house perfectly.
Pale-straw colour; dry, medium-bodied with freshly balanced acidity and scant phenolics. Very much in middle of the stylistic road with fresh crisp white fruits followed by a bit of red fruit essence and mineral earth. The toast is there but everything is knit together. Elegant, intriguing, integrated; delicious.
75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay
Disgorgement date: November 2016
