"A Champagne that dazzles with tension and energy"
2013 Vilmart Champagne Coeur de Cuvée

Posted by Ian McFadden

Coeur de Cuvée is easily one of the best grower Champagnes out there.

In 2013, Coeur de Cuvée is simply a stunning edition of the wine. It delivers so much poise and finesse.

The 2013 vintage in Champagne is one of our favorites in the past couple of decades. It was a cool, throw-back vintage with many growers harvesting in October, which is very late by recent standards.

In 2013, the Coeur de Cuvée has beautiful incisive elegance with loads of silky texture and refinement. The wine is always a study in nuance and detail, but the 2013 really delivers. 

By now, many of you know the deal with Coeur de Cuvée. It's the "heart of the cuvée," the very best juice from the precious middle portion of the first pressing. Coeur de Cuvée is sourced from a choice single vineyard, Blanches Voies, from old vines. Typical production is meager, somewhere around 5,000 bottles.

I've had many compelling experiences with mature Vilmart. In the cellar, Coeur de Cuvée impresses me as being "bulletproof." Everything is in place for the 2013 to age beautifully.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2013 Brut Coeur de Cuvée is fabulous, not to mention and absolute must-buy for Vilmart fans. All of the tension of the late harvest comes through in a Champagne that dazzles with tension and energy. Bright acids drive a core of Chardonnay fruit. Citrus, white pepper, white flowers and crushed rocks abound. Readers should be in no rush to open the 2013, it's a wine for the cellar."
