Vilmart "Cuvée Grand Cellier" Brut Champagne

SKU #1117157 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 An elegant, pure and airy nose combines notes of citrus peel, soft yeast and plenty of green apple, pear and petrol scents. There is excellent intensity to the crisp, intense and focused flavors that terminate in a very dry and linear finish. As is almost always the case with Vilmart wines, the supporting effervescence is quite fine and overall, this could be enjoyed young or easily held for another 5 to 7 years depending on your preferences.

92 points Vinous

 Vilmart’s NV Cuvée Grand Cellier bristles with all the energy that makes the Vilmart Champagnes so compelling. Crushed rocks, lemon peel, white flowers, mint and dried flowers are all crystalline and finely cut. Medium in body, fresh and pulsating in its feel, the Grand Cellier is another winner from Vilmart. This release is based on 2014, with 50% reserve wines from 2013 and 2012. Disgorged September 2016. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. (AG)  (7/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh and focused, with spring blossom and smoke-tinged mineral aromas and flavors of plum, lemon curd and toast. A harmonious Champagne, with the racy spine of acidity and a delicate mousse carrying the lasting finish of spice, citrus and mineral. Drink now through 2023. (AN)  (11/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (SR)  (8/2018)

I had an opportunity to re-evaluate this wine on Friday, the 29th of June and it is still just spectacular! It has a lively nose of citrus (lemon/lime and a touch of tangerine) and cream with (light) bread dough. Super intriguing! On the palate, a super fine bead, with tiny bubbles, yellow (and green) fruits and fine cream. Absolutely delicious! A long, citrus and mineral finish, as well. Super elegant and just flat out delicious. It was favored (100%) by our staff over the other selections that were offered on that evening.

This barrel fermented Champagne always satisfies me when I want Champagne that is rich and complex. I love the grand scale of the Grand Cellier, a trait that Vilmart always delivers. I need to drink more of this!
