Frédéric Savart is the 3rd generation of this fine Champage domaine. This Champagne house was founded after the 2nd world war by Frédéric’s grandfather, René Savart, when he made his first purchases of vineyards. During the 1970s his son Daniel took over, but production was tiny till the mid 1980s – when he started buying aggressively more vineyards for the domaine. But this remained a small domaine, especially in Champagnes’ terms. Today it consists of only 4 hectares under vines: 3 in the village of Ecueil, and one in the village of Villiers-aux-Noeuds. Almost 90% of the vines are Pinot Noir, and less than half hectare is planted with Chardonay.
The vineyards management follows the philosophy of diseases preventions rather than cure.
After harvest, fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks, and elevage is done in most cases in oak barrels.
The Champagne of Savart are pure, terroir driven wines, with fresh and zesty acidity and extremely enjoyable.
