After having a bottle last weekend, and remembering what a great value this Champagne is we were determined to source more. A blend of 70% Chardonnay, and 30% Pinot Noir, from the, 2013, 2014, 2015 vintages. The Vilmart Cellier sees about a 10-month elevage in oak, and the dosage is 8 g/l. This Champagne has good cut,focus with crisp apple, pear, white flowers, a touch of brioche, all wrapped in a cloak of wonderful mineral notes. In our opinion this is the best value in Vilmart cellar, and we are happy to still be able to offer it at this great price!
Antonio Galloni 91 pts! The NV Cuvée Grand Cellier (base 2015) is striking. Hints of lemon peel, crushed rocks and mint are framed by a kiss of new oak, with a hint of reduction that adds a further note of complexity. The Grand Cellier is based on 2015, with 25% 2014 and 25% 2013 reserve wines, aged exclusively in foudre. It is another stellar wine in the entry-level portion of the Vilmart range. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Disgorged: August, 2018. (Drink between 2019-2029)
