It is only in recent times that Champagne Savart has begun to get a lot of buzz, since 2005, when Frédéric Savart took over the reins. As Alder eludes to in the quote above, this is a producer that deserves your attention.

The great thing about Grower Champagnes is that we can talk about places. Today we are just south of Reims in the Montagne de Reims. The name of the village is Écueil. Most of the soils are sandy, and Pinot Noir prevails. Here and there you also find strains of chalky soils, and so Savart also grows a little Chardonnay.

One village over is another place: Villers-aux-Noeuds. Anyone who pays extra close attention to this newsletter will know that this village is home to the great Emmanuel Brochet, who works a fine site called Mont Benoît. It turns out that Savart also has holdings in Mont Benoît. It’s a little chalkier than Écueil, but still pretty friendly to Pinot Noir, which is what Savart grows there.

In the cellar, Savart follows a non-interventionist recipe that includes stainless steel fermentation, aging in barrel, and a laissez-faire attitude towards malolactic fermentation. These are not fruit-forward Champagnes but wines of salinity, soil, and rock. That’s why those wine geeks are so excited!

"The NV L'Accomplie Premier Cru Extra Brut is 80% old vine Pinot Noir (selection massale) and 20% Chardonnay from vintages 2012 and 2011. Aged in 50% 500-liter barrels and 50% stainless steel. This wine has great purity and mineral tension on the palate with clear and nice fruit. It is very clean and characterful long and with a complex finish. It also has good mineral grip intensity and tension." -Robert Parker
