Champagne Frédéric Savart l'Ouverture 1er Cru Brut NV

Montagne de Reims, Champagne, FranceSituated 10 km west of Reims, Frédéric Savart is based in the village of Écueil, in the Val de Reims. Continuing from his father's work with their 'laboratory of terroirs,' Savart has made the 4-hectare property his own, and has become one of the superstars of the Grower Champagne movement. L'Ouverture is the introduction to Freddy's range, with 3 vintages of Pinot Noir from Écueil's sandy soils, native fermented and aged in a mix of stainless and barrel before heading to bottle. My bottle was disgorged in November 2022, with 4 g/L. This is a shimmering BdN, with white cherry, ripe lemon, red apple, and light toast electrifying the palate, with a buzzy humming underlay and a savoury kiss of tannins. Finesse and elegance, and supreme drinkability.Tasted: 08 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
