Champagne Vilmart et Cie Grand Cellier d'Or Premier Cru 2010

vilmart et cie grand cellier

I recently reviewed Vilmat’s Grand Cellier NV Cuvee, and really liked it. Now it’s the turn of its elder sibling, the Grand Cellier D’Or 2010. This is a remarkable wine that’s still very much in its first flush of youth. I’d age this for a bit. It’s remarkable.

Champagne Vilmart & Cie Grand Cellier d’Or Premier Cru Brut 2010 France
This is 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir from a single old vine plot in Rilly, aged for 10 months in 228 litre barrels. No malolactic fermentation here. Complex nut and toast notes with rich pear and a bit of peach. Very bold but not too heavy, showing great power and depth of flavour, as well as real complexity and plenty of finesse. This is one to age for a few years, and I reckon it could turn out pretty profound. 94/100 (£70 Berry Bros & Rudd)

    I respectfully would like to suggest a correction to the above. As per the Vilmart website it states the Grand Cellier d’Or Millesime 2010 is a blending comprised of 80% Chardonnay – 20% Pinot Noir. PS keep up the outstanding work!
