Vilmart & Cie 2009 Grand Cellier d’Or 1er Cru Brut
80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir | Alc: 12.5% – Rich and Creamy
Montagne de Reims, Champagne, France
Vilmart & Cie 2009 Grand Cellier d’Or 1er Cru Brut is 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.
