Tasting Notes

The Vilmart NV Grande Reserve represents a blend of relatively young vines of Chardonnay with around 70% Pinot Noir. Displays a surprising degree of lees autolysis in the nose, joined by smoky and chalky nuances that come out more emphatically on the silken, finely effervescent palate.
