The Story

Blend: 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir classified Premier Cru

Ageing: 10 months in large oak casks. No malolactic fermentation

Dosage: 8 g/l

The Grand Cellier is a complex, pure but still juvenile wine. This wine reflects both the quality of its origins, the care given to the blending and the mastery of the ageing process. This wine pairs well with soft in texture meals. Take care to accompany the aromatic character (mineral, citrus, fresh herbs). We suggest you select fish such as sole or turbot with a mild sauce, fine crustaceans (prawns) or nice pieces of white meats (veal with citrus). You should keep this Champagne in cellar in a few months (3 or 4) to taste it as an aperitif. If you wish to get richer and complex flavors, keep it longer in cellar (2 or 3 years). Le Grand Cellier remains an audacious and elegant Champagne.

Written Notes

The grapes come from thirty-year-old vines. Only freerun jouce & first press. 40 year old casks are used. Dosage 10 grams/litre. I found a lot of oaky, heavy aromas in earlier versions of this wine. Today, Vilmart has found their way with this Chablis-like, romantically floral, first-class, nonvintage Champagne. The taste is pure and elegant.
