Frederic Savart is a force to be reckoned with.
Fred is first and foremost a farmer and winemaker but right behind that he is a bonafide wine geek. Constantly evolving, Fred makes almost a dozen wines from just 4 hectares. In his own words, his winery is “a laboratory of terroirs and a creator of cuvées.” L’Ouverture is Fred Savart’s entry level Champagne but it is far from one-dimensional. It is 100% Pinot Noir all from the village of Ecueil, half of which was fermented in mostly neutral barrel with the other half is fermented in stainless steel. The wine is only sees partial malolactic fermentation. “L’Accomplie” is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from both Ecueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds. The base vintage makes up 50% of the total blend with the other half coming from the previous vintage. The wine is aged in a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel.
We are proud to be able to offer these bottlings as well as a large format to truly show off the quality of these wines.
