Region: Champagne, France
Vilmart Grand Cellier d’Or 2015
80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir classified Premier Cru and from vines of 50 years old age in Rilly-la-Montagne.
Intense, golden, lemon and yellow in colour with very fine persistent bubbles.
Melted butter, custard, candled pineapple, cardamom and with pepper are the notes that reach us directly. Then after a few moment, another round of aromas arrives, nuts aromas at first (pralines, hazelnut) followed by mineral notes.
The wine is mature, complex with a lot of personality. It still evolves in the glass with cinnamon and gingerbread notes.
The finish is very long, with a nice conclusion of grapefruit and praline.
It texture and mature aromatic profile, will lead the wine to go with caviar or with dishes with firm texture, such as, lobster, and white meats.
