"One of Champagne's most dynamic young growers” - Savart L'Ouverture & L'Accomplie Brut NV

Posted by Ian McFadden

"There is little doubt Fred Savart is one of Champagne's most dynamic young growers.” -Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The champagnes of Fred Savart have steadily become some of our favorites.

Savart is a former professional soccer player, and even though he comes from a winemaking family, he didn't drink until he was nineteen years old. Once focused on wine, he approached it with a rare seriousness and curiosity. In Champagne, he's famous for how sharp his palate is and for the breadth of his knowledge of the wines of the world.

The Champagnes serve as great examples of an incredibly conscientious producer turning out Champagnes that never fail to deeply impress.

For us, some of the greatest testaments of Savart's work reside in his two non-vintage entry-level bottlings, L'Ouverture and L'Accomplie. They are simply impeccable, delivering precision, intensity, and an ultra-pure mingling of fruit and mineral.

Savart is a small 4ha domaine, and when the wines arrived in the U.S. 6 or 7 years ago, they caught on like wildfire. It's been very difficult keeping the Champagnes in stock. Until today, doing an offer on the wines has been unthinkable.

The small estate was founded by René Savart in 1947. The vines are mainly located in Ecueil, with small holdings in the neighboring village of Villiers-aux-Noeuds. This is Pinot Noir country, and the grape plays a key role in many of Savart’s bottlings. There's even a highly regarded clone called Pinot Fin d'Ecueil, of which the Savart's use sélection massale cuttings of in their vineyards.

Savart's L'Ouverture is a hundred percent Pinot Noir from Ecueil. L'Ouverture shows incredible refinement for its price tag. There is rich Pinot fruit, but what's really beguiling about L'Ouverture is its poise and bright, complex aromatics - cherry fruit, floral, and spice notes.

L'Accomplie is around 80 percent Pinot Noir and 20 percent Chardonnay. It's sourced from both Ecueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds, and half of the wine is vinified in barrel. L'Accomplie brings more tension and depth while boasting plenty of finesse. Chardonnay brings a steely mineral backbone and pleasing stone fruits.

These are two absolutely beautiful Champagnes. They offer a rare intersection of value and fascination. I typically drink half a case of each every year. We created special mixed 4-pack pricing because you'll want this wine around in quantity.
