Reviews for Vilmart et Cie Cuvee Grand Cellier Premier Cru Brut

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2015
An explosion of flavor, with ripe nectarine, lemon curd, clover honey, jasmine and grilled nut notes set on a firm, fine china–like frame. Disgorged May 2014. Best from 2017 through 2025. — A.N.

A blend of 70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay, this has a complex and sophisticated nose that delivers peach fruits and citrus, plus some bolder yellow plum fruits too. The palate is assertive, energetic and concentrated with peach and nectarine flavors met with lemony acidity. Long, really powerful Champagne here. Drink now or age on cork for three or more years. - Nick Stock

The style and quality of this release is quite similar to that reviewed in Issue 28 two years ago. The nose remains very restrained with aromas of green apple freshly baked brioche and citrus dissolves into intense pure and driving flavors that possess a wonderfully broad panoply of flavors that are gorgeously persistent. This is one of those rare Champagnes that can really have excellent flavor authority yet deliver it by dancing across the palate. While this doesn't seem to be quite at the level of the last release it's very close.

Explosive, seductively perfumed aromas of fresh pear, honeydew and jasmine, along with hints of iodine and tarragon. Silky and broad in the mouth, offering intense orchard and pit fruit flavors and a hint of toasty lees. Shows outstanding clarity and power on the finish, which echoes the floral and leesy notes. -- Josh Raynolds

Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, crushed rocks and almonds are some of the notes that meld together in the NV Cuvée Grand Cellier.

Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, crushed rocks and almonds are some of the notes that meld together in the NV Cuvée Grand Cellier. The flavors are brisk, nuanced and pure in this refreshing, saline-inflected Champagne. Chardonnay plays the leading role in the Grand Cellier, and that comes through in the bright flavor profile. This release is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, 50% vintage 2010 and 25% each 2011 and 2012.
