The Vilmart is smashing. So vibrant and fresh on the nose, so opulent and alluring on the palate. I'm not usually huge on Champagne, but that might be just because I don't get to drink Vilmart more often.

Pippin apple crisp. Gains richness from the riper vintage. Nicely balanced. Would have liked a bit more verve.

Lemon curd, apricot and nectarine, brioche, candied ginger and dried apple. Nuanced and subtle.
