Cuvee Rubis is one of the gems of grower Champagne Rose; it's a magnificent bottle that we cant keep stocked for long. Our shipment just came in so, and we have even more on the way, so now is the time to stock up. Few grower Roses are as serious as Vilmarts, and it's a bottle that we, along with our clients, seek out year after year for its outstanding quality. A powerful yet elegant expression of Montagne de Reims Pinot Noir fruit, this is a fantastic Rose Champagne at the top of its class and as always highly recommended.
Vinous (Antonio Galloni) 93 points! "The NV Cuvée Rubis, a blend of 2014 and 2013, is unusually strict and severe. Those are not bad qualities at all, but this edition is especially focused and pulsing with energy. The cranberry, white flowers, grapefruit and white pepper notes are finely cut. In many years, I find the Cuvée Rubis to be airy and even a touch diffuse, but in this release, the wine is finely etched and sculpted, not to mention a huge overachiever. I loved it. The Rubis is 90% Pinot Noir (of which about 15% is still red wine) and 10% Chardonnay. Disgorged November 2016. Dosage is 9 grams per liter. (Drink between 2018-2026)"
