The Vilmart, Champagne "Grand Cellier" Premier Cru was a Merchant's Pick

If you like Krug, you'll love....

March 20, 2024

Within the Champagne shortage, we have a Premier Cru Champagne to single out.  We can think of no better Champagne to feature - whiles supplies last - ahead of the holiday season than Vilmart's Grand Cellier Premier Cru, often called a "Baby Krug" by wine Champagne lovers.  

With a history of making stunning Champagnes going back to 1890, Vilmart & Cie is known for its brioche, stone-fruit, and mineral-laced acidity - all very Krug-esque. 

"A mouthwatering Champagne that shows seamless integration of the plush and creamy mousse, rapier-like acidity and expressive range of peach, chopped nut, ripe green apple, star anise and honeysuckle aromas and flavors that persist on the long finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Disgorged January 2022. Drink now through 2027." Wine Spectator

What We Love About This Wine

Vilmart & Cie is located in the Grand Montagne, where most of the holdings are Premier Cru. The now 5th generation winemaker Laurent Champs makes all of his wines organically.  The wine-making style produces crisp acidic structure coupled with the richness from the fermentation and aging process.

We are not the only ones who love this wine.  Peter Liem, considered THE authority on Champagne is also a huge fan:  "Vilmart & Cie. is not only one of the greatest grower-estates in Champagne, but one of the finest Champagne producers of any type in the region.”

Be sure to secure yours today!  There will be none left for the holiday season.  

Extremely limited.  While supplies last.

Enjoy!
