Description
 
Savarts farm four hectares of vines, three in Ecueil and one in the neighboring village of Villiers-aux-Noeuds. Nearly all of it is pinot noir, with just a half-hectare of chardonnay. His philosophy in the vineyards is to prevent disease as much as possible, rather than treat it—towards this end, he prefers a holistic approach, creating an environment within which the plant is better equipped to resist malady on its own.

Most of Savart's wines are fermented in stainless steel, although he is increasing the use of barriques, which he has been working with since 2004. Malolactic may be carried out or not, depending on the individual wine and the particularities of the vintage.

Savart's "L'Annee" is 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay and composed of entirely the current vintage's first press. It is aged entirely in oak barrels on thin lees and malolactic fermentation is stopped. Bottling occurs with no fining or filtering and the dosage is 6g/L
