Champagne Vilmart & Cie, “Emotion” Brut Rosé

Vilmart’s prestige rosé is highlighting the finest Michelin-rated restaurants and being stuffed into the cellars of savvy collectors as quickly as it can be bottled.

“Emotion” is a new cuvée: A 60/40 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 62-year-old vines in the Premier Cru village of Rilly-la-Montagne. In the cellar, grapes were pressed separately into 228-liter Burgundy barrels where an élevage (without malo) occurred over a 10-month period. A rarity in the region, long barrel aging is one of the identifying characteristics of Vilmart’s Champagnes—this lends the finished wines an added dimension that invites comparisons to Krug. Vilmart then disgorged the wine, added an eight-gram dosage, and allowed it to rest further before release. 

Vilmart’s 2014 “Emotion” Brut Rosé has officially entered a sweet spot. It spills nto a Burgundy stem with a refined mousse and dazzling soft orange and pale salmon hues. After a few gentle swirls, sublime aromas of green strawberry, dried raspberry, fleshy peach, pomelo, tangy raspberry, and Rainier cherry rolled out, followed lockstep by crushed stone, sous bois, almond skin, baking spice, and damp herbs. This is a fantastic, full-bodied, deeply textured champagne with a vinous and expansive palate that delivers bracing acidity to each powerful layer. The multi-dimensional, and constantly evolving experience this rosé brings ensures you’ll never tire of pulling the cork, be it now or on its 20th birthday.
