Region: Champagne, France
Vilmart Grand Cellier NV
70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir
This wine develops a fine, elegant and long-tasting mousse.
On the first nose, the wine reveals white flower aromas (honeysuckle, lilac), citrus notes as well as fresh butter and cream.
The wine reveals spicy notes of ginger, lemongrass, which were unsuspected until then. The beautiful quality of the acidity (present throughout the tasting) is especially remarkable. A pure, creamy and silky textured wine.
The finish is clean, slightly mineral and long. The impression is harmonious and vibrant.
This wine pairs well with soft and creamy in texture meals. Fish such as sole or turbot with a mild sauce, fine crustaceans such as prawns or oysters are suggested. This Champagne is also an excellent aperitif.
