If you like Krug and Bollinger, then Vilmart is for you. One of the original Grower Champagne estates, they have a reputation for being on the Burgundian end of the Champagne spectrum. Even though their vines 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 are more dominant. Older examples of these wines come to taste a lot like a mature Chevalier-Montrachet with fermentation and aging in barrels. But unlike a C-M, Vilmart blocks the malos, retaining great mineral tension. 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!

Champagne

Champagne boasts some of the world’s greatest luxury brands with Krug, Cristal and, of course, Dom Perignon. But it’s also home to hundreds of small dynamic producers—farmers who grow their own grapes (often organically) and make (often with natural methods) tiny amounts of pure and absolutely delicious wine that reflect the individual personalities of their villages and terroirs. Toast with these wines, for sure. But also treat them like the great wines they are: taste, drink, explore!
