Champagne Camille Savès – Bouzy
The domaine was created in 1894, and the fourth generation of family ownership is represented by Hervé Savès, who replaced his father Camille in 1982. They have 25 Grand Cru acres in three of Champagne’s most important villages – Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne.
All of the wines are fermented in enamel-lined steel tanks, but then go into a combination of steel tanks and neutral Oak for ageing, before the 2nd fermentation in bottle. All wines receive a minimum of four years on the lees, and malolactic fermentation is blocked for all wines. The style is based on crisp minerality and fresh, biscuit-laced fruit. There is an extra dimension of citrus cutting through, making these wines of great finesse with rich fruit lurking just beneath the surface. The Savès wines have developed a strong cult-like following in recent years, and the small quantities available to us tend to disappear quickly.

Camille Savès NV Carte d’Or: All Grand Cru fruit from Bouzy, 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. “Citrus, biscuits, pastry dough, minerals, tropical fruit – the most distinct of Savès’ non-vintage range, and also the most interesting. Still young, this wine will only get better.” Brad Baker, Champagne Warrior
