About

93+

"The 2007 Camille Savès Brut Millésime is comprised of a blend of eighty percent pinot noir and twenty percent chardonnay, with all of the grapes for the vintage bottling hailing from vineyards that are a minimum of thirty-five years of age. This vintage did not go through malolactic fermentation and spent five years aging on the lees prior to disgorgement, with a dosage of seven grams per liter. My tech sheets on this bottling do not indicate that any of the vins clairs for this wine were barrel fermented, but I do seem to catch a bit of oak influence here on the nose that is really well done and captivating. The bouquet is stunning, jumping from the glass in a complex and vibrant blend of peach, apple, a touch of almond paste, a beautifully classy base of soil, a touch of fresh nutmeg, brioche and just a touch of oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and youthfully complex, with a rock solid core, outstanding focus and balance, very refined mousse, brisk acids and superb focus and grip on the very long and racy finish. 2007 is supposed to be a vintage that favors chardonnay, but apparently the old vine pinot in Bouzy did not get the memo! A gorgeous bottle of wine that deserves a few years in the cellar to fully blossom. 2016-2035+." (08/13)

"(80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay; disgorged November, 2012): Bright yellow. Intense, mineral-driven scents of candied lemon, redcurrant, buttered toast and fresh flowers. Smoky and focused in the mouth, offering energetic orchard fruit flavors complemented by deeper-pitched dried fig and honey. Packs a serious punch on the finish, which features a sexy floral quality and lingering toastiness."

"Savès' 2007 Brut - representing an 80-20 blend of Pinot and Chardonnay from Bouzy - features exuberantly juicy grapefruit, lime and apple alluringly laced with salt, chalk and liquid honeysuckle perfume. A succulent and mouthwateringly sustained finish incorporates invigorating piquancy of pips and rinds. The bottle I tasted had been disgorged already last November, but I suspect that it would add nutty depth and perhaps other additional interest over the next couple of years." (12/13)
