NV Vilmart & Cie - Brut Champagne Premier Cru Grande Reserve (375ml)

Price on Apr 17, 2014: $34.99


Capturing our interest in the same way heirloom tomatoes have replaced the mealy red balls available at your local bodega, grower Champagnes mean just one estate and the small vineyards each proprietor maintains vintage after vintage, as opposed to the bulk-bubblies bottled by larger Champagne houses who buy based on contracts. Always distinctive, grower Champagnes offer incredible quality-to-price ratios, and Vilmart is considered one of the finest grower Champagnes money can buy. It's even called "poor man's Krug" by Champagne aficionados around the world. Our exclusive Grand Réserve cuvée combines Pinot Noir (70%) and Chardonnay (30%) for an intensely rich Champagne with plenty of verve on the finish. Rich and toasty, it's a knockout with caviar.
