Vilmart & Cie Grand Cellier d'Or Brut 2011
Save $28.50 (28%)
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.
