Saturday, January 28, 2012 - This latest bottle of Vilmart Grand Cellier was even better than the last. It had wonderful effervesence along with light and extrememly well balanced citrus fruit and minerality. This is one of those bottles that is hard not to like. It appeals to veteran champagne drinkers and non-champagne drinkers alike. The Vilmart fruit is very fresh and flavorful, but without going over the top. This new bottle is based off of 2008 fruit and is one of the best bottles of Grand Cellier that I have had. To me the is a no brainer buy if you can find it between $40 and $50 per bottle. However, once you get into the mid-$60 territory that some retailers sell this for, there are a wealth of other quality bottles that stack up much better with this champagne.
