Reviews and Ratings

Vilmart et Cie Grande Reserve Premier Cru Champagne is layered with ripe red berry, dark berry, biscuit, honeyed citrus, sweet cake spice and smoky, toasty nut flavours delivered on a satiny, fine mousse. Finishes smoky with a lingering minerality and vibrant finish on the palate. Take your time with this complex and intriguing champagne. - Community Wine Reviews
