NV Vilmart Grande Reserve

From a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. With its lovely depth of fruit and seamless balance, the Grande Reserve has always provided a great introduction to the Vilmart range. Tasting the new releases last month however, this cuvee proved quite a revelation, as Laurent has undoubtedly managed to push the boundaries of perfection again, producing a Grande Reserve with the same delicious accessibility, but with an added poise and finesse.

Vilmart Grand Cellier

Produced from a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, Vilmart's Grand Cellier has to be one of the most refined and stylish NV wines of Champagne. With wonderfully expressive and pure aromas of white flowers, honeysuckle and citrus notes which continue and develop on the palate to combine with delicate hints of hazelnut. Offering more intensity than the Grande Reserve, but with incredible focus and finesse, this is akin to a great Puligny.

Vilmart Cuvee Rubis

Produced from a blend of 90% Pinot Noir (including 15% red wine) and 10% Chardonnay. Many rose Champagnes seem to fall short, but this is truly sensational. With an attractive depth of colour, this is a rose of real substance, combining lovely purity and elegance with an expressive array of red and orange fruit flavours balanced by an uplifting acidity. Super poise and precision.

MESTRES MAGIC!

A 'Grand' Celebration!

The Mestres family have been winegrowers in Penedes since 1312, producing the first Champagne method sparkling wine, over a century ago, in 1928.

2013 Visol

First produced in 1945, the 'Visol', translating as, 'wine on its own', was the first zero dosage, Brut Nature Cava. The recently released, 2013 vintage, combines the same enticing, floral, apple and fresh and dried apricot fruits with a fabulous focus and vibrant, saline, minerality. Gloriously balanced with a refreshing acidity and long stylish finish.

2017 Elena

Indeed, this is the only rose Cava, matured in cask. Like Vilmart's Cuvee Rubis. There is nothing insipid or confected about this amazingly stylish and complex wine. Bone dry on the palate, with floral and red fruit aromas, combined with hints of pastry and subtle balsamic nuances, there is a glorious freshness of fruit on the palate with the depth to shine throughout a meal.

2008 Clos Nostre Senyor

The Clos Nostre Senyor really shows the distinguished complexity of the extended ageing of these sensational Gran Reserva Cavas. Produced from a blend of 20% Macabeu, 60% Xarel-lo and 20% Parellada, from 60 year old bush vines, coming from the single vineyard of Clos Nostre Senoirâ, which gives the wine its name. The wine is vinified and aged for 10 months in chestnut casks, with the second fermentation in bottle, remaining sur latte for over 84 months!
