Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
From: Bouzy, Champagne
This wine is truly a rare find—a still and delicate red from Grand Cru Bouzy terroir, brought to its full potential by the Savès estate. The grapes come exclusively from old vines and benefit from an ideal exposure. The estate insists on waiting until the wines are ready before they are consumed, so they are released four years after harvest.
About: Champagne Camille Savès was established in the 1894 by Eugène Savès, an early proponent of making and selling his own wine. The Domaine has since been passed down generationally, and is now headed by Hervé Savès. At 10 total hectares, the Domaine is comprised of only Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards.
Hervé does not use herbicides or pesticides in his vineyards and follows certified organic and biodynamic practices. Vineyard management is meticulous with yield control, de-budding and sorting.
Except for the Bouzy rouge and the cuvee Anaïs (which are vinified in oak) the wines are vinified in enamel tanks. Malolactic fermentations are systematically blocked. Each wine is left on the lees for 36 to 60 months prior to disgorgement. The dosages at Savès vary from 4 to 9 g/l. They are done with traditional liqueur. After disgorgement, the wines rest another six months before they are released.
