Why You’ll Love It?
If there’s one grower whose popularity has exploded over the last year, it’s Frédéric Savart. He never drank a drop of alcohol until he was 19, due to his dedication to football, yet today he is renowned among Champagne producers for his keen tasting abilities and his relentless exploration of the world of wine. Producing about 3,000 cases annually, it’s obvious that Savart’s goal is to make high-quality wine. He just happens to be in Champagne. That’s why some of his wines see malolactic fermentation and others don’t. Some see large oak barrels, some see small oak barrels, and others don’t see any oak at all. Dosage varies. It’s also why his vin clair was mind-blowingly delicious.
