Vilmart & Cie is dates back to 1890, and since the current head of the estate, Laurent Champs, tooke over in 1989 there has been no chemical fertilizers or herbicides. The Grand Reserve is Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which like all Vilmart wines is doesn't undergo malolactic ferment and is aged in large oak casks.
From the mouth of the importer (Terry Theise):
"It’s clear to me Vilmart is a Champagne estate of unassailable consequence, a must-have for anyone Interested in the possibilities of this most suavely powerful and graceful of all wines. Casks are hardly the point anymore. Organic viticulture, (truly!) low yields, remarkable polish of fruit, and the deliberate patient pursuit of a vision of perfection make Laurent Champs’ estate a gemstone gleaming among the chalk."
