Tasting Notes :

Vilmart & Cie are generally considered one of the best growers in Champagne and are even compared to the powerhouse Krug. Like Krug, their Champagnes are very wine-like and are aged in wood containers. The Coeur de Cuvee is its outstanding creation and the 2012 vintage is a fine example. Created from vines over 50 years old, it is a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir.

The 2012 Coeur de Cuvée is magnificent. In this vintage Laurent Champs balances the natural intensity of the year with tremendous energy and vibrancy, making for a Champagne of remarkable beauty. Like all the Vilmart wines, the 2012 Coeur de Cuvée is super-refined. Even so, it is also incredibly tight and nowhere near ready. I find its depth, power and tension absolutely compelling. Bright saline notes, spice and floral accents extend the eternal finish. The 2012 is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Disgorged: February 2019. Don't miss it!

A vivid Champagne with an articulate display of juicy black currant, lime blossom, candied ginger and Macadamia nut notes chiseled by firm, well-honed acidity. Offers a plushly creamy mousse and a fragrant skein of spice and graphite that winds through the flavor range and lingers on the finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Disgorged March 2019. Drink now through 2037.
