Vilmart & Cie Cœur de Cuvée Rilly-la-Montagne 1er Cru Brut Champagne Blend 2009

$150

Vinous, 94 Points: A racy, exuberant wine, the 2009 Coeur de Cuve offers up a super-appealing mlange of apricot, butter, baked apple tart and vanillin. The combination of the ripe, warm vintage along with fermentation and aging in small French oak barrels yielded an especially opulent Coeur de Cuve with plenty of exotic and tropical overtones. The 2009 will be ready to drink with minimal cellaring. Disgorged March 2016. Dosage is 8 grams per liter.

Tight and shiny at the front with a Granny Smith like acidity. On the palate poised and refreshing with more apples, faint lemon and stark minerality. Intense, refreshing and pleasantly steely for an 09. A long life ahead.

Really impressive bubbles! Light canary in the glass...precise, elegant, balanced and creamy. Absolutely round with no rough edges. Absolute joy to drink!

young but incredibly intense with ripe fruit carried by ample acidity. A few years in the cellar will add some creaminess but no sin to open now.
