"Frédéric Savart has a holistic approach to his vineyard and his winery is a laboratory of Terroirs and a creator of Cuvées."
The soils in Champagne is predominantly limestone with a high level of chalk. This consists of granules of calcite formed from the fragile shells of marine micro-organisms. The outcrops of sedimentary rock are also composed of chalk, marl and limestone. This type of soil provides good drainage and also imparts that particular mineral flavour found in certain Champagne wines.
History / Ethos
Champagne Frédéric Savart is a very small producer making 1er Cru Champagne from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The estate consists of 4 hectares of vines in Ecueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds, just south of Reims. Frédéric Savart is passionate about vinification and he likes to state that his work is an accompaniment to the work done by the vines. The plots here are particularly prized for their sélection massale of the renowned pinot fin d'Ecueil, planted here by Frédéric's dad and grand dad.
