vilmart cellier brut
Blending 70% Chardonnay with 30% Pinot Noir and the vintages 2012, 2013 and 2014, the NV Premier Cru Grand Cellier displays a deep, clear and intense bouquet with ripe citrus and grapefruit notes. Full-bodied, fresh and very elegant, with just a hint of tannins from newer oak vats (the wines were vinified in oak for ten months), this is a well-structured, beautifully dry and terribly fresh cuvée with lingering citrus flavors on the impressive finish. This is still very young, though, and with remarkable acidity (no malolactic fermentation). Tasted April 2018.
