Vilmart et Cie Grande Res NV, Case of 6 Bottles £168.00
At Rilly-la-Montagne, on the slopes of the Montagne de Reims, Laurent Champs continues to receive rave reviews from the world's wine press and in the words of Tom Stevenson MW,
" The range begins at brilliant and just keeps getting better."
The Grande Réserve, smooth, perfectly well balanced, is a mixture of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay which is allowed to rest and mature in Vilmarts deep chalk cellars for at least 24 months after having been aged for 10 months in the huge oak foudres that can be seen as you pass from the reception area to the cave.
This is assembled from fruits from the 2011 harvest, along with reserve wines from 2010, and is Laurent's entry level non vintage champagne
OUR CUSTOMERS SAY.......
"As one of the premier boutique hotels in the country we source our champagne from the suppliers who really know their product. Henry George Wines have some pretty impressive grower champagnes to choose from and their service has always been second to none"
Richard Hayes, Drakes of Brighton
