2004 Champagne Vilmart Coeur De Cuvee (Case - 6/75cl)
Coeur de Cuvee is the most exclusive wine produced by Vilmart & Co, created from old vines averaging 55 years. The grape blend is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, matured for ten months in oak before bottling. There is no malolactic fermenation in any of Vilmarts wines, preserving the fresh fruit character. Compared to the Grand Cellier dOr, this is a much richer and more intense Champagne. This wine will likely have hit peak maturity now, and while there is no rush, there is no need to wait.
