Region: Champagne, France
Vilmart Coeur de Cuvée 2013
80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir classified Premier Cru and from vines of sixty years old age in Rilly-la-Montagne.
Its straw-yellow colour is accompanied with a fine persistent mousse.
On the nose, the first aromas of hazelnut and brioche awake the senses. After a few moments, with much of delicacy, subtle notes of vanilla and dried fruit are married with more subtle lemony aromas. The nose is both elegant and powerful, which indicates a wine of great complexity and a beautiful harmony.
On the palate, flavours of butter,”crème brûlée” and white pepper spices and blossom awaken taste buds. It is a generous and complex wine with an exceptional freshness.
This Champagne has incredible personality!
Crayfish and porcini mushrooms, scallop tartare or a “foie gras” pan-fried will bring depth and a beautiful aromatic evolution.
