Antonio Galloni on Vinous.com:
“The NV Extra-Brut L’Ouverture (100% Pinot Noir, base 2020) is wonderfully open-knit and inviting. Kirsch, red plum, spice, mint and dried flowers all grace this sensual, inviting NV Champagne from Savart. Hints of pastry, dried flowers and spice appear over time, adding warmth and breath to this decidedly understated, soft-spoken Champagne. The Pinot is so expressive in this release. What a great way to start this tasting. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Drink 2022-2028”

Frederic Savart is an independent Champagne maker who creates beautifully expressive, vivid and crystalline wines of great depth and power.
He is a terroir fanatic, producing what he refers to as vins identitaires, which express their sense of place as something more authentic and true than the need to fit into the “traditional” Champagne categories of Brut, Blanc or Rose.
Savart’s grandfather had planted his first vines in 1947 and later passed his tiny property to Frederic’s father. He worked alongside him whilst purchasing more holdings, until taking over completely in 2005. He immediately did away with herbicides and pesticides, and took a much more labour-intensive approach to tending to the Pinot Noir vines that grow on the fine clay of Ecueil, including ensuring that any planting he did was with a selection massale of cuttings from his grandfather’s oldest plots.
Today he makes his champagnes with an artisanal yet uncompromising approach. 50 separate vineyard plots scattered around a minuscule 4.5 hectares of almost entirely Pinot Noir vines, in the Premier Cru villages of Ecueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds on the glorious slopes of the Montagne-de-Reims.
Thanks to a meticulous approach to winemaking and forward thinking philosophy, Frederic Savart has cemented his reputation as one of the hottest Champagne Grower of his generation. The fruit of his artistry need to be tasted to be fully comprehended. His wines live on a completely different planet – authentic artisanal Champagne not to be missed.
