The straw-yellow colour with pale green highlights is fed by a very delicate effervescence announcing breadth and finesse. On the nose, a harmonious bouquet of citrus fruits animates our senses with in particular, lemon, lime and grapefruit. In aromatic support, subtle vanilla notes and roasted hazelnuts bring structure and consistency to the wine. A delicate and silky texture on the mouth reflects the personality of this chiseled wine. This vintage made from 60 years old vines on a chalk floor, brings us a very developed mineral side.
White chalk under a thin clayey lay, depending on parcels.

A family company founded in 1890 with Desiré Vilmart Laurent Champs, (chef de cave, last descendant and fifth generation of the Vilmart family). It combines the organic approach with traditional wine-making where fermentation and fining take place in wooden casks and, above all, there is no malolactic fermentation consequently the natural acidity of the grapes remains intact. The estate, in the Montagne de Reims region, is made up of 11 hectares divided into 12 lots. There are seven Cuvées.
