Celebrated Champagne from Frédéric Savart


Celebrated Champagne from Frédéric Savart

Wine Team New York |

In recent years, the wines of Frédéric Savart have become celebrated among lovers of terroir-expressive, grower Champagne. Farming just four hectares of vines, these rare wines are hedonistic, with overt use of oak, adding a rich, spicy quality. The blend is usually Pinot Noir-dominant, as befits Savart's holdings in the Montagne de Reims.

Ouverture is the place to start with Savart; a 100% Pinot Noir blend of three vintages. Next up is Accomplie - a drier style, made from only two vintages. Bulle de Rosé is the sumptuous rosé from one village, Ecueil. Mont Benoît (95% Pinot Noir) and Mont des Chrétiens (100% Chardonnay) are small-volume, single-parcel wines.

In addition to the house wines, a new collaboration with Drémont Père et Fils has resulted in a series of wines which showcase the region's various terroirs. 007 is Pinot Noir from the villages of Mailly and Verzy. 009 is Grand Cru Chardonnay from Avize and Oger, while 010 is Verzenay Pinot Noir. Finally, 011 is Pinot Noir from the rarely seen Petite Montagne de Reims. Try a bottle of each for a masterclass in Champagne terroirs.
