Vilmart is on the Burgundian end of the Champagne spectrum. Older examples of his top wines come to taste a lot like a mature Chevalier-Montrachet with fermentation and aging in barrels. But unlike a true C-M Vilmart blocks the malos, retaining great mineral tension. Aside from their rosé, the wines are dominated by Chardonnay—and not the pencil-lead Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs, but the more generous Chard that you get on the Montagne de Reims where the black grapes tend to be more dominant.

More important than these ""technical"" details, Vilmart is obsessed with good vineyard work, has plenty of low-yielding older vines, and happens to make really delicious wines. Taste and you will learn. And if you have already learned, you will almost certainly want to taste some more!

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"The 2012 Brut Rosé Emotion (formerly Grand Cellier Rubis) is a total stunner. All of the richness and radiance of the year comes through in a Champagne that offers an uncommon marriage of elegance and power. In the glass, the 2012 is rich and deep, with a real sense of vertical intensity. It is far from an easygoing, aperitif-style wine. The Emotion is a powerful Rosé that will offer its finest drinking at the dinner table. It is a blend of 60% saignée Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. I loved it." -Vinous
