Savart Ephemere 016 Rose Champagne
Frédéric Savart was born into a family of vignerons, but his real dream was to be a professional footballer. He even signed a youth contract with Stade de Reims, but after meeting the woman who was to become his wife, he refused a potential transfer to another club, and decided to return home to work with his father, Daniel. The family estate was founded by Daniel's father, René Savart, who purchased his first vines in 1947. Daniel himself took over the winemaking in the 1970s, although production remained extremely small until the mid-1980s, when he significantly expanded the family's vineyard holdings. Fred returned in 1993 at age 23 and in 2001 he left the cooperative, only doing pressing there. Since 2005, Frédéric has been at the helm of the estate.
Ephémère is a collaboration by Frédéric Savart and Maison Dremont. The bouquet bursts with heaps of fresh strawberry, cherry, cranberry and a green herbaceous hint. The palate is luscious and leaves a creamy sensation that lingers well after the finish.
