Champagne Vilmart & Cie

Champagne Vilmart & Cie is a Champagne house based in the village of Rilly-la-Montagne, at the foot of the Montagne de Reims. Vine growing history here dates back to 1890, and in fact Vilmart is one of the pioneers of ‘grower’ champagne. Under the guidance of Laurent Champs since 1989, the house has risen to become one of the "top estates" (according to Galloni) in Champagne.

Part of the ethos that has served Vilmart so well is their commitment to organic viticulture. Working in partnership with nature, rather than struggling against it, gives their wines "extraordinary class and elegance " (Galloni) that many ‘grand marques’ cannot match. Champs uses no chemicals, and the estate has been pesticide-free since 1989, creating wonderfully healthy sub soils.

The remarkable "finesse" in the wine is also achieved by two signature wine-making techniques: vinification in oak barrels and avoidance of malolactic fermentation. Combining these techniques with grapes of exceptional quality, their Champagnes display "depth and complexity" and "a brisk focus and poise" (Decanter).

Vilmart Blanches Voies Blanc Blancs Premier Cru 2009 (1x75cl)

Vinous (96)

The 2009 Blanc de Blancs Les Blanches Voies is every bit as stunning as it was last year. The combination of the warm year and the natural richness conferred by these 70+- year-old vines yields a powerful, vinous Champagne with tremendous character, depth and the pedigree to drink well for many years. Laurent Champs gave the Blanc de Blancs 7 years on the cork, as opposed to the 6 that are customary for the Coeur de Cuvée. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2017.

Vilmart Coeur de Cuvee 2011 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

Aromas of confit citrus, pear, fresh pastry and English walnuts preface Vilmart's 2011 Brut Premier Cru Coeur de Cuvée, a full-bodied, muscular and incisive wine with a deep core, racy acids and a delicately nutty finish. Disgorged a few months ago, it is a terrific effort that transcends the vintage, even if it won't go down as one of the great renditions of Coeur de Cuvée. Champs told me that he picked five or six days after his neighbors, and that appears to be borne out by the wines body and structure.

Vilmart Coeur de Cuvee 2012 (6x75cl)

Vinous (96)

The 2012 Coeur de Cuvée is magnificent. In this vintage Laurent Champs balances the natural intensity of the year with tremendous energy and vibrancy, making for a Champagne of remarkable beauty. Like all the Vilmart wines, the 2012 Coeur de Cuvée is super-refined. Even so, it is also incredibly tight and nowhere near ready. I find its depth, power and tension absolutely compelling. Bright saline notes, spice and floral accents extend the eternal finish. The 2012 is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Disgorged: February 2019. Don't miss it!

Vilmart Grand Cellier d'Or 2014 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93+)

Disgorged in June 2018, the 2014 Brut Premier Cru Grand Cellier d'Or is an attractive rendition of this wine, which derives from south-facing lieu-dit Les Blanches Voies. Unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp white peach, citrus oil, toasted bread and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and precise, with a chiseled core of ripe but racy fruit, lively acids and a lingering finish. This will unwind beautifully with a bit of bottle age.

Vibrant, finely cut acidity structures this seamlessly integrated version, backing layered flavors of poached apple, quince, honey, candied ginger, lemon zest and crème de cassis with hints of coconut and orchard blossom. Shows lovely texture and length.
