Champagne Vilmart & Cie

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 its 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 subsoils.

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 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.
