Dating from 1890, Champagne Vilmart now owns 11 hectares of vines - all premier cru - near Rilly-la-Montagne at the foot of the Montagne de Reims. Unusually for the areas, 60% of the vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, a proportion reflected in the blend of their top wine, Coeur de Cuvée.
"Vilmart has quickly established cult status, only topped among growers by J Selosse." Richard Juhlin in his book 4000 Champagnes

"Light gold with a vigorous mousse. Exotically perfumed, complex bouquet evokes smoky pit fruits and cured meat. There's an intensely leesy, nutty character here that reminds me of a Jura wine. Broad and fleshy, offering palate-staining peach pit, honeyed pear and preserved lemon flavors. Impressively concentrated, luscious and cream Champagne with a singular personality that I love, but that some might find a bit too wild." Josh Raynolds
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
