Savart Premier Cru "Accomplie," Extra Brut - NV

Item # 31156 750mL

A Champagne made from a blend based on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. An elegant, dry sparkling wine with a creamy texture that will work with any number of seafood dishes from a simple, steamed lobster to grilled scallops. The base wine is aged in a combination of steel and older oak. This cuvée comes from "first press" juice known as the "cuvée" in French. Naturally, this provides the most unctuous part of the fruit.

Staff Pick Notes

Don't let the modern label fool you. The Savart domaine has been making Champagne in Ecuiel for two generations. Frederic Savart's Champagnes are beautiful, precise, and concentrated, with the quality of the grapes providing the main influence on the style of a cuvée. The l'Acomplie is 80/20 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay, although you wouldn't immediately pick up a lot of red fruit on the nose. Rather, you notice a young, yeasty nose with subtle nuttiness, green apple, and a touch of red cherry in the background. The palate is dense and precise with a rich lemon meringue essence and notes of red plum. It closes with fantastic length. An impressively balanced Champagne with youthful impact. Delicious now, but will definitely develop with bottle age.

Glossary

Pinot Noir

The Burgundy region of northeastern France is the historic home of the Pinot Noir grape, and is the source of the world’s greatest examples. Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer. Terroir, the concept that wines from a specific region have unique and identifiable traits, is intricately...

Champagne

Champagne is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a brilliant food wine. For consistency and quality, turn to the big Champagne brands and you’ll never go wrong. Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. These winemakers control every aspect of grape cultivation and vinification, from the vine to the finished bottle, which is...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
