Master sommeliers & wine critics adore Family Estate Champagnes
Why? Family Estate Champagnes are exquisite, artisanal and one of a kind. Unlike mass produced Champagne, they reflect the terroir [teh-RWARH] of Champagne's finest private estates, the artistry of the winemakers and the legacies of the families behind them. Until recently, these Champagnes could only be found in the world's most celebrated five-star restaurants, such as The French Laundry, Noma and Eleven Madison Park, etc.
So grab a flute or a coupe and let me be your personal chef de cave!

“One of my favorite rosés in all of Champagne” - Peter Liem, the Champagne guru's guru
This Rosé's delicious, rich profile has been created by the uncommon Saignée (“sonyay”) method, in which some of the juice is drawn off crushed Pinot Noir grapes.
From the "Golden Child" of Champagne...
This racy Champagne is made from 100% Pinot Noir. It "drinks rich" and deserves a big Burgundy glass, with ample time for reflection.
Rich & voluptuous, this treasure is named for the Archbishop Aubry de Humbert, who, in May 1211, laid the foundation stone of the Reims Cathedral ~ home to the coronation of French Kings.
Aurelien Suenen has taken the Champagne world by storm ...
Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in a single Grand Crú vineyard in Chouilly.
“Fût de Chêne” (“Oak Barrels”) is 100% Chardonnay fermented and aged in, yes, French oak barrels, coopered from oak grown on the top of the Montagne de Reims. A favorite for the fantastical pairings at the famed Alinea (awarded three stars by Michelin).
“V&C has a cult following for its refined, elegant Champagnes”. - Food & Wine
Robert Parker has rated Vilmart & Cie as “Outstanding”. Note: 2013 Vintage
