Savart’s most limited production Champagne made from 100% old vine Pinot Noir with a mere ~400 bottles produced. Visually, I continue to double take at this wine as it barely appears Rosé. It’s intensely perfumed, floral and deeply aromatic, with a precise, taut and linear palate that screams purity and and elegance. A very singular, vinous and most importantly delicious Rosé Champagne that there will never be enough of! ☺️ — 25 days ago
Did anyone get that license plate? The acidity & volume run you over. This must be what getting hit by lightening feels like.
At this stage it needs to be consumed with food. I can see this bottling being very polarizing.￼ I very much enjoyed it, but would prefer to have it as the sole offering at my meal. Disgorged February 2018.￼ — 4 months ago

Very bright acidity, medium finish, a sliver of red fruit but more on the herbaceous side which was surprising. Good, but perhaps not as great relative to expectations? — 6 months ago
The word that comes to mind immediately is purity. One of the most pure, most honest champagnes I’ve tasted. Light yellow gold with effusive perlage. A sultry stream of bubbles and wonderful creaminess. The nose is a bit shy upon opening with a little apple, a little toffee, and a little mint. Soon the wine begins to truly blossom with fresh nectarines and subtle apricot. The brioche aromas are stately and buttered. Exquisite and exciting.
A collaboration between Dremont and Frederic Savart, very limited production with only 2512 bottles. With a dosage of only 2 grams, the acidity is quite high and zippy. Absolutely amazing purity and the terroir is positively shrieking here. A Blanc de Blancs from the Grand Cru villages of Avize and Oger and you can definitely feel that. Medium weight but is rich and feels substantial. This feels a bit like an event. Despite being primarily an entry level or a bit of a step above, this has real weight and substance to it.
The palate showcases whispers of what this could really be down the road. Really nice mouthfeel but a bit volatile at times. Plenty of pretty peaches and salinity. Pure Chardonnay characteristics of chalk and citrus abound here. Medium finish with the faint ghost of spice. This is really enjoyable today but try to hold it for a few years, if you can. — 5 months ago
