A really intense Blanc de Noirs made from old Pinot Noir vines grown on chalk and clay soils in the Premier Cru parcels of Ecueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds in the Montagne de Reims appellation. L’Ouverture by Frederic Savart is a blend of three different vins clairs vintages offering an expression of the right harmony and complexity. It is re-fermented in the bottle following the Champenoise Method, and it rests on the lees for at least 24 months. Ouverture is a clear demonstration of the extraordinary potential for expressing Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims. It has a brilliant straw-yellow color, criss-crossed by a fine, persistent perlage. The nose is characterized by a refined facet with aromas of citrus, white peach, brioche, white flowers and iodine notes. The palate is taut and satisfying, deep, intense and refined with a finish characterized by a chalky, mineral freshness.
