2000 Vilmart - Brut Champagne Cuvée Création
Wine Spectator: 95 Points
"Rich and lively, this offers an elegance and airiness that belies the concentrated layers of blackberry coulis, lemon zest, roast nuts, coffee liqueur and vanilla, with an array of exotic spices. Fine-tuned and mouthwatering, with a long, long finish. Drink now through 2025. 35 cases imported." –AN.
"Proprietor Laurent Champs makes some of the region’s most distinctive Champagnes. The Vilmart wines are characterized by an extreme sense of elegance, clarity and definition. The domaine’s eleven hectares of vineyards are planted with 60% Chardonnay, 36% Pinot Noir and 4% Pinot Meunier, with vine ages ranging from 35 to 55 years, clearly towards the older side of the spectrum in the region. Champs prefers oak aging for his wines. Creation is 80% Chardonnay from Les Blanches Voies and 20% Pinot Noir from Basses Greves vinified in oak barrels and bottled with 9 grams of dosage. Proprietor Laurent Champs makes some of the most elegant, refined Champagnes readers are likely to come across. Every wine I tasted during my visit earlier this year was fabulous." -Wine Advocate
