Champagne Vilmart et Cie. is arguably the greatest of the smaller Champagne houses that own and maintain their own vineyards (an arrangement known as “grower Champagne”). This bottling of Vilmart’s non-vintage “Grand Cellier” combines 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Some Champagne is quiet and subtle, a whisper. Vilmart, however, is audacious and luxurious and exotic, a bit flamboyant even.

The still wine at is aged for ten months in oak casks prior to secondary fermentation.

Incredibly expressive, the palate is layered with green and gold tropical fruit, a creamy mouthfeel, nutty brioche, and a vibrant finish.

“Laurent Champs grows this fruit at his vineyards in Rilly-la-Montagne, a premier cru village in the Montagne de Reims. He farms his estate without any chemical inputs. Blending 70 percent chardonnay with pinot noir, he ages the base wine in large neutral-oak vessels, then leaves it for 30 months on the lees, in bottle. The wine’s limestone minerality reminded several tasters of white Burgundy, a firm structure balanced by sweet notes of honey and puff pastry. Dense, floral and layered in its complexity, this would be delicious decanted with a salmon soufflé.”

“A classy Champagne, with a lovely, viscous creaminess on the palate, carrying finely detailed flavors of peach skin, spring blossom, steeped raspberry and slivered almond. Long and mouthwatering, with a well-spiced finish. Disgorged December 2017. Drink now through 2025.”

“The NV Brut Grand Cellier (2015 base) is fabulous. Rich, ample and creamy, the Grand Cellier is so alluring from the very first taste. All the Vilmart signatures – most notably uncommon elegance – come through loud and clear. Baked apple tart, pear, spice and a hint off butter add nuance, but it is the wine’s overall feel that impresses most. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this seductive Champagne from Vilmart. Disgorged: July 1, 2018.”
