The vineyards entitled to the Champagne appellation are spread over 319 municipalities. Only 17 of these municipalities are entitled to the Grand Cru appellation because their terroir is of the highest quality. The grapes from those terroirs are very popular, rare and relatively expensive. They are used almost exclusively in the composition of the Cuvée prestige wines of the major champagne houses.

The Champagne Mailly Grand Cru Brut Reserve is made from 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. The wine has a golden yellow color with a nice mousse. This is a Champagne of great class! Put this next to the more 'marketing-driven champagnes' and you will also find that the value of this champagne is in the wine and not in the advertising budget. Subtle, full, mineral and refined dry taste, very fine bubbles and a long, powerful aftertaste. The wine shows aromas of lightly toasted bread, fresh butter and apricot. Nice fruity flavors in the mouth complemented by toast and butter aromas. Good lingering, lively and delicate mousse.

Vineyard for Champagne Mailly Grand Cru Brut Reserve

Mailly was founded in 1929 by a group of winegrowers who decided to produce emphatically rich wines, exclusively from grapes from the Grand Cru vineyards of Champagne. The vineyards entitled to the Champagne appellation are spread over 319 municipalities. Only 17 of these municipalities are entitled to the Grand Cru appellation because their terroir is of the highest quality. The grapes from those terroirs are very popular, rare, and relatively expensive. They are used almost exclusively in the composition of the Cuvée prestige wines of the major champagne houses. Mailly Champagne is run by a new generation of winegrowers who cherish the same independence as the founders. The 70 hectares of vineyards they own are divided among 25 families and together form one Grand Cru vineyard. The special treatment of the grapes from the various plots results in a wide range of different wines. Mailly uses only two of the three permitted grape varieties: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Because their Pinot Noir thrives in the Montagne de Reims, the emphasis is on this. Mailly offers beautiful high-quality champagnes that combine very well not only as an aperitif but also with a meal.
