The pale colour with traces of silver announce a majority of Pinot Noir with an excellent maturity. It's followed by a delicate effervescence. The fine bubbles, delicate and persistent, will enhace the vivacity and its elegance to the surface. The first impression on the nose, is marked by a great intensity. It will open up on a rich bouquet of pastries, with notes of frangipane and honeysuckle, with attractive aromas of pepper mint flagrance. After the opening, you are able to feel notes of pear and peach syrup, developing the intensity of this champagne. On the palate, you can feel a fresh and a sharp attack of candied fruits. It reveals a beautiful balance between the richness and the tension with a complex structure. The bitterness of the citrus fruits is perfectly integrated with further flavours of pastries which remain present throughout the long, fine finish. 

A blend of pinot noir (70%) and chardonnay (30%), this has a profound sense of harmony on both the nose and palate. Aromas of grilled nuts, pepper and lightly spiced wild raspberry fruits are pristine, leading to a palate that has beautifully supple, fleshy texture. The acidity is assertive, not harsh; the depth, balance and concentration is really something. Drink now whilst fresh or up to three years. JAMES SUCKLING

Vilmart's latest NV Brut Premier Cru Grande Réserve is showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of pear, wheat toast, yeast extract and confit citrus. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and complete, it's fleshy and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, tangy acids and a pillowy mousse. While it's already showing well it will also age with grace.
