No chill from Savart here. Made the mistake of bringing a magnum of this to the mother-in-law's birthday party... Packed with middle aged aunties... So you can imagine how a brutally acidic, highly mineralic, dry champagne went... Let's just say the NZ savvy b was a bigger hit. Thankfully, the mother-in-law's got great taste and she loved it.
A champagne that begs for air. Austere essentially - only the final remnants of the wine really showcased the brilliant fruit. The nose is incredibly floral with light bread notes, orange rind and pear. The palate is intense and cuts like a knife. Red berries, lemon juice, lime, marzipan, salt... Really salty. I like this wine now, but it really needs time to flesh out and show its best.
NB: So different from the Ledru despite having nearly the same composition. Ah! The wonders of wine. Hard to nail the reason why, but I suspect maker's mark is probably the biggest factor. Both vibrates with great inner energy, but I can't help but feel that the Savart's just spitefully lean 🤣 Just a gut feeling as the site (and possibly base vintage too) is different. — a year ago
My first time trying the very limited production L’Expression Rosé from Savart. It has great power, vibrant energy and a chalky minerality. There are hints of oxidative notes which added to complexity. It is seriously light in color for a Rosé which was very interesting. — 3 months ago

Orange, lime, tangerine, minerality. Elevated acidity, intensity and finish. Brioche coming through on the palate towards the finish. — 2 years ago

Not correct bottle (app won’t find it).... First time trying Les Noues from excellent grower Frédéric Savart. It is fresh, vibrant and youthful with a fine mousse and a bit of an Armagnac-like nose that further reveals exotic citrus, brioche, toasted nuts and smokey minerals. Finishes with good length and tension. — 7 months ago
