Vilmart & Cie. is not only one of the greatest grower-estates in Champagne, but one of the finest champagne producers of any type in the region.
Coming from the northern region of Champagne called Montagne de Reims, this Premier Cru Brut NV Cuvée offers tiny bubbles and deep notes of citrus fruit and toast with a long, satisfying finish on the palate. It is a delicious Champagne that drinks far more expensive than its respective price. Proprietor Laurent Champs can be counted on for wines of extraordinary class and elegance. Vilmart & Cie. traces its history back to 1890, when it was founded by Désiré Vilmart, and from the beginning, Vilmart & Cie. has always been a récoltant-manipulant, making champagne exclusively from estate-owned vines. Since 1989 the estate has been in the hands of Laurent Champs, the fifth generation of the family to take the helm of the house. They are differentiated by the high percentage of Chardonnay in their vineyards. "All of the wines are fermented in oak, although you would hardly know that tasting the wines." - Antonio Galloni
