Tasting Notes

One of the great grower-estates in Champagne, Vilmart et Cie traces its history back to 1890 and is now in the hands of Laurent Champs, the fifth generation of the family. Grapes come from premier cru vineyards, from a single vintage (2014) with 42 months aging. 

Aromatic, with floral and ripe berry and cherry fruit notes, this harmonious Champagne shows a zesty underpinning and a creamy mousse. Fresh and mouthwatering throughout, showing hints of chopped almond, Meyer lemon peel and pastry dough. Offers a lingering finish loaded with fragrant spice and graphite accents. Disgorged June 2018. Drink now through 2029. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

 

The 2014 Grand Cellier d’Or is stellar. Bright, focused and articulate, the 2014 speaks with class and pedigree to burn. I especially admire the wine’s balance. Hints of orange peel, spice, vanillin and a hint of chamomile lend nuance in a creamy, wonderfully articulate Champagne. The balance of energy and textural richness is compelling. I would give the 2014 at least a few years to be at its best. Exquisite and alluring, the 2014 Grand Cellier d’Or is one of the standouts in this range. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2018. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
