Vilmart & Cie

Vilmart is on the Burgundian end of the Champagne spectrum. Older examples of his top wines come to taste a lot like a mature Chevalier-Montrachet with fermentation and aging in barrels. But unlike a true C-M Vilmart blocks the malos, retaining great mineral tension. Aside from their rosé, the wines are dominated by Chardonnay—and not the pencil-lead Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs, but the more generous Chard that you get on the Montagne de Reims where the black grapes tend to be more dominant.

More important than these ""technical"" details, Vilmart is obsessed with good vineyard work, has plenty of low-yielding older vines, and happens to make really delicious wines. Taste and you will learn. And if you have already learned, you will almost certainly want to taste some more!

Professional Reviews

"The NV Brut Premier Cru Cuvee Grand Cellier is a great starting place for readers who want to explore the Vilmart wines. An impeccably balanced, harmonious Champagne, the Grand Cellier has all of the qualities that make the Vilmart Champagnes so appealing. Sweet floral notes meld into expressive bright green orchard fruit, all supported by a faint vein of oak. Subtle hints of spice and white flowers add lift on the vibrant finish. The Grand Cellier is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, based on the 2009 vintage, with 2008 and 2007 reserve wines. Disgorgement date: November 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
