VILMART & CIE GRAND CELLIER D'OR 1ER CRU BRUT CHAMPAGNE 2009

Wired for Wine USA

blinis and all the trimmings. Be careful; they may stampede... As for the entree, your choices are many. The fantastic acidity of this French bubbly makes it a perfect partner for creamy or buttery dishes, and fried foods too. Just about anything that swims or lives in water will work too. And don't forget eggs and egg dishes. Our first choice? Marinated lobster with champagne beurre blanc. Light-as-air shrimp, asparagus and scallion tempura will be divine with this wine's crisp acidity. Poached oysters and artichokes with champagne cream is another wonderful option. Open another bottle and dive into a buttery, caramelized Tarte Tatin (apple tart) and everyone will go home happy. If you're lucky enough to have a bottle left, you might consider eggs benedict in the morning... Sweet dreams!

Vilmart has been a récoltant-manipulant since the estate was founded in 1890 by Désiré Vilmart.  The estate is located in the Premier Cru village of Rilly-la-Montagne where Champs organically farms 10 parcels over 11 hectares.  Grand Cellier d’Or is the classic vintage wine of the house for Vilmart, made from  45 year old vines.

Wine Spectator:
 "Spice and graphite accents lace this bright and mouthwatering Champagne. Refined and silky in texture, this harmonious version offers flavors of pure black cherry, pastry dough, almond skin, candied lemon zest and fleur de sel. Drink now through 2029" 2013

Peter Liem, Champagneguide.net:  “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.  Made up of 80 percent chardonnay and 20 percent pinot noir, this comes entirely from 45-year-old vines in the Rilly vineyard of Blanches Voies. Like all Vilmart champagnes, it has benefited from post-disgorgement age: this bottle was disgorged in April of 2013, and nearly a year later, it feels opulent and harmonious, its warm, yellow-fruit flavors showing the generosity of the vintage. It’s held firmly in place by vibrant acidity, which, along with briskly chalky minerality, contributes the poise and finesse so typical of Vilmart’s wines."

Winery:  Colour:  Intense, golden, lemon and yellow in colour with very fine persistent bubbles.  Aromas:  The first nose is intense and complexe, it initially reveals melted butter, custard, candied pineapple, cardamom and white pepper aromas. Then after a few moments, another round of flavors arrives, nuts aromas at first (pralines, azelnut) followed by mineral notes (chalk, roasted shellfish). The wine is mature, complex with a lot of personality. It still evolves in the glass with cinnamon and gingerbread aromas. It is a very classy, distinguished and rare nose.  Palate:  Fresh and lively, the beautiful effervescence and the intense acidity accompany you to the end of the palate. The slightly imperceptible dosage and the frank acidity of the wine deliver a sharp balance between acid and sugar (in the mind of extra brut wines). The vinosity is expressed through bold and wood. Throughout the tasting, the acidity is still present, giving a feeling of intensity and providing spirit. The finish is very long around 10 to 12 seconds and clean, with a nice conclusion on grapefruit and pralines notes."

CARE GUIDE

^ BACK TO TOP

DO

  • Always read the care label and washing instructions before washing your clothes.
  • Arrange your laundry into groups with similar wash care instructions and organise into whites, darks and colours.
  • The care label washing temperature is the highest permitted temperature.
    But if you are unsure, always wash at a lower temperature rather than higher.
  • Rinse swimwear immediately after use and do not wring.
  • Turn garment inside out before washing.

DON'T

  • Avoid using too much detergent.
  • Do not use fabric detergents which contain bleach.
  • Do not tumble dry garment unless indicated on the care label.
  • Do not iron prints, trims or embellishments.
  • Do not leave garments with white and contrast coloured panels soaking for prolonged periods.
  • Garments with metal trims should not be left to soak.

FOOTWEAR

  • We recommend treating suede & nubuck with an appropriate protector before wear.
    A suede brush will help to keep the nap raised & the suede looking new.
  • If your shoes get wet, stuff them with newspaper and dry naturally, away from a direct heat source.
    This will prevent the outer materials drying out and cracking.
  • Unless otherwise stated, trainers and canvas shoes should not go in the washing machine.
    If they get dirty, let them dry and remove the excess dirt with a clean bush or cloth.
  • For heeled products, check top pieces (heel tips) regularly & when they start to wear down take them to a good shoe repair shop and have them replaced to avoid slipping or causing further damage to your shoes.
  • When purchasing leather products from ASOS please remember that it is a natural product & some variations between pairs in terms of colour and finishes may occur.
