Champagne Vilmart & Cie Grand Cellier d'Or 1er Cru 2013 (6-Pack)
**Sold as a 6-Pack**
"This wine smells like walking into a bakery first thing in the morning! All you smell is warmth and depth of aromas such as nuts, cinnamon, yeast, custard, and fresh bread. How inviting is that!? The palate is just as rich and rewarding with layerd flavours of citrus and pineapple accompanied by a fresh sea salt minerality that adds a lot of uniqueness to this wine. Beautiful!" - Team TFW
80% Chardonnay - 20% Pinot Noir. Ageing: 10 months in oak barrels of 228 liters. No malolactic fermentation
Intense, golden, lemon and yellow in colour with very fine persistent bubbles.
The first nose is intense and complexe, it initially reveals melted butter, custard, candied pineapple, cardamom and white pepper aromas. Then after a few moments, another round of flavors arrives, nuts aromas at first (pralines, hazelnut) followed by mineral notes (chalk, roasted shellfish). The wine is mature, complex with a lot of personality. It still evolves in the glass with cinnamon and gingerbread aromas. It is a very classy, distinguished and rare nose
Fresh and lively, the beautiful effervescence and the intense acidity accompany you to the end of the palate. The slightly imperceptible dosage and the frank acidity of the wine deliver a «sharp» balance between acid and sugar (in the mind of extra brut wines). The vinosity is expressed through bold and wood. Throughout the tasting, the acidity is still present, giving a feeling of intensity and providing spirit. The finish is very long around 10 to 12 seconds and clean, with a nice conclusion on grapefruit and pralines notes
