Savart was born into wine, but chose first to attempt a professional soccer career. Upon retiring that dream after a few years in Reims’ youth system, Frederic returned to his family’s land and took up the torch of the family’s winemaking. Largely influenced by Anselme Selosse’s principles of vineyard work, Savart takes a more holistic approach, tending the vineyards as naturally as possible. His work helps the grapes achieve greater ripeness than most in the area. L’Accomplie is a wine made only from the cuvée, or the first pressing of the grapes, comprised of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, half vinified in barrel, that portion going through malolactic conversion. This release, disgorged in in October 2018, is based on the 2015 vintage, which makes up 70% of the blend. The remainder comes from both 2013 & 2014. This wine is bold & vinous, with electric tension and intense clarity.
Review
Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "Readers looking foran up and coming grower in Champagne with serious potential need to put Savart on their radar screens. Ambitious and passionate, Fred Savart clearly loves being in the vineyard above all else. He also has a deep interest for the world's great wines. These current releases, especially at the NV level, are informed by 2011 and 2010, both challenging years in Champagne, but the top vintage wines give a clearer sense of the potential here. Savart has only been making wine for a few years, so he is still finding his style, something that is quite normal at this stage. Today's wines are made with less batonnage than the past and give greater emphasis to minerality. If the 2013 vins clairs I tasted from barrel are representative of the overall level of quality, it won't be too long before Savart stakes out a place among Champagne's top growers."
