The Savès family has lived in the heart Bouzy since 1894, as indicated in some registers that still exist today.
Eugène Savès, an agricultural engineer by trade, founded the house when he married Anaïs Jolicoeur, the daughter of a Wine producer from this picturesque village. A persuasive man of character and a real lover of the land, he soon realised how important it was to produce his own wine and he threw himself into the adventure of wine production.
Since then, over the years, Louis, Camille and Hervé have followed in their father’s footsteps as head of the House, perpetuating the family values that established its reputation.
Hervé now tends a vineyard of about ten hectares on “terroirs” classified as exclusively Grand Cru and Premier Cru.
The vineyard have an average lifespan of over 40 years and they are tended to with great care, respecting the traditions of the Champagne region and protecting the environment.
Pest management, natural fertilizers, tillage and maintenance of the soil, the use of endemic predators, careful tying and thinning show how hard they strive to invest their Champagnes with the excellence and unique character of this prestigious origin.
The Savès family tends its 10 hectares of vineyards in the towns of Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne (Grand Cru) and Tauxières (Premier Cru).
Enjoying a perfect south-facing aspect and limestone soil, the Savès family tend their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varieties throughout the year, whatever the weather, and then blend them into different cuvees, taking great care to protect the environment.
