Camille Saves N.V. Carte Blanche Premier Cru Brut, Champagne, Bouzy
Year in a year out one of our top selling, and most thrilling Champagnes. This is the wine I pour for people that turn up their nose at Champagne and it is a game changer. 70% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay and all from 1er Cru villages. This is a doughy, plump, deeply apple fruited wine tucked in pie crust. Just so giving and generous. This is the wine that always describe as a librarian in fishnet stockings, sexy but oh so smart.
The Saves family has lived in Bouzy since 1894. It was founded by agricultural engineer, Eugene Saves after marrying Anais Jolicoeur, the daughter of a wine producer from the area. Since then, Louis, Camille, and Herve have continued the traditions established by their father. The vineyards here face due south and have a very high chalk content. No herbicides or pesticides are used here and winemaking is meticulous. You can taste the results.
