Vilmart & Cie Grand Cellier d’Or 2015
Intense, golden, lemon and yellow in colour with very fine persistent bubbles. These small pearls give birth on the surface to a beautiful white cord.
Melted butter, custard, candled pineapple, cardamom and with pepper are the notes that reach us directly. Then after a few moments, another round of flavours arrives, nuts aromas at first (pralines, hazelnut) 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. The imperceptible dosage and the frank acidity give us a sharp acid / sugar balance extra brut type. The vinosity is expressed through bold and wood.
The finish is very long, around 10 to 12 seconds and clean, with a nice conclusion on grapefruit and pralines notes.
