Vilmart & Cie, Grand Cellier d’Or, Brut, Premier Cru, 2013

RRP £41

Désiré Vilmart began estatebottling Champagne as early as 1890, and today his great-great-grandson, Laurent Champs, is at the helm of the family estate, making Champagnes of exemplary quality. His Grand Cellier d’Or is a vintage-dated blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, all from the vineyard of Blanches Voies in Rilly-la-Montagne, and its vinification in oak barrels amplifies its intrinsic richness and depth. It’s structured for ageing, needing time to show its full complexity and expression.
