Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "(based on a blend of 2014, 2015, and 2016 vintages) Offering up a classy bouquet of minty yellow orchard fruit, white flowers, fresh peach and warm pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, with a pinpoint mousse, ripe but racy acids and a long finish. Pristinely balanced, its understated delicacy is typical both of the site and Savart's style. (WK)" 91 points John Gilman "(based on the bacth disgorged in September of 2020) The l’Ouverture cuvee from Monsieur Savart is composed entirely from pinot noir grown in the village of Ecueil, with half of the vins clairs barrel-fermented and raised in cask and the other in tank. Only the reserve wines that go into the blend have gone through malo for this wine, which is aged under cork, rather than crown cap prior to disgorgement. This release was disgorged in September of 2020 and finished with a dosage of seven grams per liter. It offers up a lovely nose of white peach, apple, patissiere, chalky soil tones and a nice touch of orange zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, good mineral drive, frothy mousse and lovely focus and balance on the long and youthful finish. This is a lovely bottle that will be even better with a few years in the cellar. (JG)"
