Fred Savart is a force to be reckoned with. Tasting in his cellar is as much a tour of the various terroirs of the Montagne de Reims as it is a discussion of what’s new in the wine world. Fred Savart works with two varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, across two neighboring villages - Ecueil (3 ha) and Villers-aux-Noeuds (1 ha). Haute Couture is new cuvée in 2016 that blends 100% Chardonnay from two Cote de Blancs villages: Le Mesnil and Oger. Limited production and aged 10 months in large format barrels this wine is exemplary of what meticulous care and precision can yield.
