1996 Vilmart & Cie Brut Premier Cru Grand Cellier Rubis, Champagne, France
“Vilmart is the greatest grower Champagne I know.””..the Vilmart range begins at brilliant and just keeps getting better.” Tom Stevenson MW.
"Proprietor Laurent Champs makes some of the most elegant, refined wines in Champagne. All of the wines are aged in oak ranging from large, neutral casks to small barriques, some of which are new for the top selections. Few producers have been able to find such impeccable balance using oak. A hint of Ramonet here, a suggestion of Leflaive there....simply put, these are majestic wines that no one who loves fine Champagne will want to be without." Antonio Galloni
