The Camille Savès winery opened its doors in 1894 and has been passed down from father to son for four generations. Herve Saves, grandson of Camille, is now running the estate. The winery owns 25 acres of grand cru vineyards. with vines that average 35-40 years of age.
The blend for this wine is 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay.
Gold colored. 12% ABV. Small, persistent beads. Gorgeous nose of fresh bread, nuts, creme brulee and brioche. Fresh, crisp and effervescent. Yeast, apples, minerals, citrus and toast on the palate. The finish is tremendous. Outstanding Champagne. I plan on looking for a compelling price to restock this wine in the cellar. Ready to drink.
My rating: 92 points.
