Vilmart & Cie
Champagne Vilmart & Cie is a family-run Champagne house that embodies the very essence of Champagne craftsmanship and tradition.
Founded in 1890 by Désiré Vilmart, this house is located in the village of Rilly-la-Montagne, in the heart of France's Champagne region. For over a century, the Vilmart family has been committed to producing Champagnes of exceptional quality, with an emphasis on respect for the terroir and artisanal winemaking methods.
The house has remained in the family since its foundation, and the fifth generation today carries on this legacy with unwavering passion. This family continuity is essential to pRéserver the consistency and quality of Champagnes.
The vineyard covers 11 hectares, mainly located in Montagne de Reims, a region famous for its chalky soils and optimal sun exposure. These ideal vine-growing conditions enable the house to cultivate the classic grape varieties of Champagne, including Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The grapes come mainly from estate vineyards and are carefully selected for their exceptional quality. Each vineyard parcel is vinified separately to highlight the unique characteristics of each terroir.
The house's Champagnes are the fruit of a skilful combination of different harvest years, with a predominance of vintages, meaning that each bottle is the expression of an exceptional year. This approach highlights the richness and complexity of the Champagne terroir.
Description Vilmart & Cie Grand Cellier.
Blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir classified as Premier Cru and coming from the vineyards of Rilly-la Montagne.
The light lemon color, tinged with golden and green reflections, is shimmering and bright. The calm and regular effervescence is made of very fine bubbles.
The expression is floral (honeysuckle, lilac) with citrus notes on a touch of fresh butter and fresh cream.
After a few minutes of airing, the notes of evolution and breeding appear and enrich the whole: the nose is complex, fine, with a lot of character.
When the wine warms up slightly, the expression becomes more "racy".
The wine then expresses spicy notes, ginger and lemongrass. One notices especially the very good quality of the acidity which maintains the desire throughout the tasting.
These various sensations produce an overall creamy and harmonious texture.
The finish is clean, slightly mineral and long. The last impression is of grapefruit and leaves the memory of a dynamic and vigorous wine.
