    May 16, 2022 - I don’t think I am being hyperbolic when I say this is the most surprising champagne value I have encountered. I bought a 6 pack from Crush many years ago and this third bottle marks a trifecta of classic quality bottles. Ripe apples and brioche. Deep - winey - complex. Mature. Long. I am going to drink the remaining bottles soon as I don’t see this getting any better. Wow. Have never seen the wine again - I need to look harder. (95)

    September 25, 2020 - Delicious fully mature Champagne upon first sip, faded a bit in the glass and some funky notes arose - slight TCA?

    September 2, 2019 - Camille Saves 2002.
    Godt moden men nydelig på duft.
    Modne epler, krydder og søtbakst.
    Pen mousse.
    Fullmoden på smak med konsentrert frukt.
    Bra tyngde her.
    Nydelig syre.
    Drikker helt supert nå.
    Sitter lenge med tydelig modne epler i ettersmak.
    Ypperlig mineralitet.
    Saves har gitt utrolig mye glede opp gjennom årene! 92p

    August 17, 2019 - A fantastic showing of this wine. With red Delicious apples, caramel corn, and candied ginger on the nose, one might expect a blousy wine. However, on the palate, the wine was both full and tightly structured, with notes of green pear, ginger, straw, and crushed minerals.

    February 9, 2019 - Some downers the past years, but this was stunning. Fresh with perfect ripe fruit.
