2002 Vilmart Coeur de Cuvee


94Average Score
flagChampagne / France

The 2002 Brut Coeur de Cuvee is absolutely stunning. This young, towering Champagne bursts from the glass with layers of mineral-infused fruit, showing fabulous intensity and purity from start to finish. Hints of tropical, opulent fruit are very nicely tempered by the wine’s underlying structure. Think Montrachet with bubbles. The Coeur de Cuvee is made from 50 year old vines in Les Blanches Voies Hautes. The blend is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Disgorged May 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. ||Vilmart is one of Champagne’s top estates. Proprietor Laurent Champs can be counted on for wines of extraordinary class and elegance. Vilmart is differentiated by the high percentage of Chardonnay in their vineyards. All of the wines are fermented in oak, although you would hardly know that tasting the wines.||A Terry Theise Selection, imported by Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY; tel.
