John Gilman - View from the Cellar:

"The new release of Camille Savès’ Carte Blanche bottling is graced with a stylish new label. As is customary with this cuvée, the wine is a blend from the villages of Bouzy, Ambonnay, Tours-sur-Marne and Tauxières, with the latter village only entitled to premier cru status, so that is the reason this fine bottling is ranked as a premier cru (despite the inclusion of seventy-five percent grand cru grapes in the blend). The cépages is seventy-five percent pinot noir (from the grand cru villages) and twenty-five percent chardonnay from Tauxières, with the wine aged three years on the lees and receiving a dosage of nine grams per liter. Sixty percent of the blend is from the 2008 vintage in this release, with the balance from the previous vintage. The wine offers up a superb nose of apple, quince, bread dough, a complex base of chalky soil tones and a nice topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and beautifully delineated, with a fine core, crisp acids, lovely focus and balance, delicate mousse and fine grip on the long and classy finish. I have always loved this bottling and the new label only makes the wine even more aesthetically appealing. 2013-2025+." (08/13)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The Brut Premier Cru Carte Blanche is a beautiful introduction to the Champagnes of Camille Saves. The aromas and flavors are totally alive in the glass, with chiseled, saline notes that provide backbone and vibrancy. This gorgeous, delicious Champagne shows why Bouzy is so highly regarded. Pears, white flowers and slate flow through to the chiseled finish. The blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay works beautifully. This is without question one of the best Champagnes on the market in its price range. This bottle was disgorged in February 2013. Dosage was 9 grams/liter." (11/13)

Wine Spectator:

"Delicate, fresh and floral, this displays fine balance and good verve to the mouthwatering acidity, backed by flavors of white cherry, fresh ginger, lemon sorbet and apple. Disgorged February 2013. Drink now through 2018. 3,000 cases made. -AN" (12/13)
