Champagne ‘Grand Cellier’, Vilmart & Cie

rand Cellier is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir from 2 parcels in Rilly-la-Montagne – “Les Hautes Grèves”
& “Les Basses Grèves”. Like all of Vilmart’s cuvees, this wine does not go through malolactic fermentation and spends time in oak. For the NV wines, oak aging is in large cask from 500-2000 liter. The current disgorgement spent about 18 months sur latte and was disgorged in November of 2012.

Tasting Notes

50% 2013 and 25% each ’12-’11, deg 6/2015; dosage made, as for all of Laurent’s wines, from still wines of the two best cuvées, Grand Cellier d’Or and Coeur de Cuvée, done in wood. In the first 1-2 years after disgorgement this wine shows a spiky kind of flavor geometry.  It bears mentioning that many tasters find this wine hugely impressive and high-impact. -Terry Theise
