Potential

Vintage after vintage, this wine delivers at an extremely high level, and 2002 is no different. This vintage is filled with rich biscuits, citrus, minerals, and a few red berry notes. A wave of cream melts into the finish to lift this wine even higher. Already delicious now, this wine is built to age and will further improve with time.

Potential

This is a wine made up of cherries, strawberries, and a hint of sweetness. It tilts to the lighter side, as tannins, while present, are minimal. Personally, I like the Camille Savès red wine better when blended to make a Rosé Champagne, but this is still a refreshing Bouzy Rouge.

Potential

This is the debut vintage of this wine, which is named after Hervé Savès' great grandmother, who was part of the first generation of Savès to make their own wine. This is also the only Camille Savès wine that is aged completely in oak, and it has the highest Pinot Noir content (90%) of any wine in the range. On the palate it is extremely lively, where doughy citrus and pastry crust dance and tickle the tongue. Creamy, red berry-citrus notes become more prominent with time and the berry aspect is most noticeable on the finish. Hints of vanilla are currently present, but time should see them fade. A very well-made wine and a great first effort. Kudos.
