NV Camille Savés Carte Blanche Brut Premier Cru

The Camille Savés family has been growing vines and making Champagne since the end of the 19th century. Founded in 1894 by Eugene Savés, his successors, Louis, Camille, and now Hervé have been running the family business ever since. The estate’s 22 acres is located mainly in the territory of Bouzy Grand Cru. The soil is chalky and covered with a rich limestone that gives the Champagne full body and great structure. The wines do not go through ML which yields a more refined and lively Champagne. The bottles mature at least four years in the cellar and Hervé riddles the bottles by hand every day. 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, Montagne de Reims. · The nose is quite robust. In the mouth, the wine makes your palate snap to attention. There is a refreshing texture, a hint of minerality, and a long finish. Reviewed August 6, 2007
