L'Ouverture 1er Cru Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

Strawberries and cream,
Fresh red berries, red apples,strawberries, raspberries, roses and herbs. Secondaries of cream and biscuits and chalk minerality
Dry with a high acidity, fine beaded mousse, volume on the mid palate but with a nervy fresh spine that carries the wine through a long finish.

Bang for the buck. Regal stuff.
Ps for money this was better than bereche and savart on the same day. It’s classic, less vinous and just true to roots. For $40 it’s unreal.

Les Noues Ecueil 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2015

Not correct bottle (app won’t find it).... First time trying Les Noues from excellent grower Frédéric Savart. It is fresh, vibrant and youthful with a fine mousse and a bit of an Armagnac-like nose that further reveals exotic citrus, brioche, toasted nuts and smokey minerals. Finishes with good length and tension. — a year ago

Bulle de Rosé Vieilles Vignes - Extra Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend Rosé

One of the unassailable truths about wine is that none of us, and I mean none of us, drink enough rosé Champagne. So join me in trying to rectify that situation, will you? For your consideration, one of Champagnes most artisan rosés, made organically in the little cellar of Fred Savart, @champagnesavart, whose deft touch with some of his oldest vines makes for a distinctly savory interpretation of rosé bubbles. There’s dried herbs, even some marijuana bud, mixed with citrus, a whiff of berries, sea air and electric minerality. This stuff ain’t easy to find (Fred doesn’t make much of it) so if you see it, snap it up. I got mine at @crushwineco I think. — 2 months ago

Le Mont Benoit Vieilles Vignes Villers Aux Noeuds 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2014

No chill from Savart here. Made the mistake of bringing a magnum of this to the mother-in-law's birthday party... Packed with middle aged aunties... So you can imagine how a brutally acidic, highly mineralic, dry champagne went... Let's just say the NZ savvy b was a bigger hit. Thankfully, the mother-in-law's got great taste and she loved it.

A champagne that begs for air. Austere essentially - only the final remnants of the wine really showcased the brilliant fruit. The nose is incredibly floral with light bread notes, orange rind and pear. The palate is intense and cuts like a knife. Red berries, lemon juice, lime, marzipan, salt... Really salty. I like this wine now, but it really needs time to flesh out and show its best.

NB: So different from the Ledru despite having nearly the same composition. Ah! The wonders of wine. Hard to nail the reason why, but I suspect maker's mark is probably the biggest factor. Both vibrates with great inner energy, but I can't help but feel that the Savart's just spitefully lean 🤣 Just a gut feeling as the site (and possibly base vintage too) is different.
