John Gauntley
Laurent's entry level Champagne is the only one dominated by Pinot Noir. It is overtly fruity but fresh and quite delicious. Vilmart's class shines through. One could almost describe the Grande Reserve as gourmand - i.e perfectly matched with food

Wine Spectator - 93 points
"Satiny in texture, this shows a sense of finesse that belies the power of this dense and focused Champagne. Tightly knit flavors of blackberry pte de fruit, biscuit, honey, star anise and toasted almond show beautiful integration with the intense backbone of acidity and rich underpinning of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2025. 110 cases imported - AN"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 points
"Displays a surprising degree of lees autolysis in the nose, joined by smoky and chalky nuances that come out more emphatically on the silken, finely effervescent palate. Suggestions of jellied red currant along with apple and lemon as well as a faint aura of barrel put me a bit in mind of Chassagne-Montrachet. This finishes with bursting brightness, ringing clarity, mouthwatering salinity, cheek-pinching piquancy, and consummate refreshment. It should fare deliciously for at least the one or two years. - Wine Advocate (Nov 2013)"

Chris Kissack 17+/20
"There is a rather fabulous nose, very refined and elegant, redolent of citrus fruits, especially oranges, alongside more developed aromas of honeyed cashew nuts and polished wood. This has a mature, complex and composed quality - not simple at all! A great palate follows, with a fine mousse, ever so slightly creamy, gently fleshy, but certainly fresh and crisply structured. It has a lovely and elegant flavour laid over a good structure, is fine and shows quite a seamless presence in the mouth. A linear, vigorous and yet flattering style, firmly poised and with a delicious herby, polished finish. This is really good; I clearly need to be looking out for more of Vilmart's wines for my cellar."
