Couer de Cuvee refers to the heart of the press - that is the liquid gold, very first bit of juice that comes from the first pressing of the fruit. 6 or 7 years on lees and oak, 60 year old vines - this beats Dom Perignon and Cristal out the gate. STSWine

Disgorged in May 2018 with seven grams per liter dosage, Vilmart's new 2011 Brut Coeur de Cuvée is showing beautifully, offering up an expressive bouquet of crisp green pear, yellow apple, dried white flowers, English walnuts and spices. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and nicely concentrated, it's a fine-boned, precise rendition of this cuvée, built around ripe but racy acids and complemented by a pinpoint mousse. Vilmart is the sort of grower that succeeds in vintages such as 2011, and this wine met my expectations. 94 POINTS WINE ADVOCATE
