Tasting Notes

A saignée rosé Champagne that's based mostly on Pinot Noir (60%) alongside 60 year old, Premier Cru Chardonnay. The initial wine aged in 228 liter French casks for 10 months before bottling and then aging 60 months sur latte. Vilmart's Champagnes are luxurious, full-bodied and complex on the palate. Remarkable with langoustines.

Staff Pick Notes

Speaking to the hedonistic pleasure I get from drinking Vilmart & Cie Champagnes certainly gets me emotional. A vintage rosé sparkler comprised of 60% Pinot Noir Rosé de Saignée and 40% Chardonnay, Laurent Champs employs aging and fermentation in small barriques while restricting malo to create a broad-shouldered, structured Champagne. Its crisp intensity walks the line of beauty, precision, and power. This dense sparkler absolutely demands to be put on the table, with a dense mousse that feels like pins and needles pressing on the palate. Flavors of strawberry shortcake, tangerine, mint, crème fraîche, and pastry dough; this really encapsulates the sort of cuvée meant for drinkers who want a complex, engaging experience from their sparklers. Vilmart is truly exceptional.

Champagne

Champagne is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a brilliant food wine. For consistency and quality, turn to the big Champagne brands and you’ll never go wrong. Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
