Mailly

The village of Mailly was classified Grand Cru at the beginning of the 20th century. This is where Champagne Mailly is located, in the heart of Montagne de Reims and precisely 14km from the eponymous town.

Founded in 1929 by several winegrowing families, its history is resolutely distinctive, illustrating the ambition and dynamism that has always reigned in the Champagne region. Today, Maison Mailly continues to shine thanks to its splendid cuvées that combine finesse and elegance.

Description Mailly Blanc de Pinot Noir.

It is a champagne of assembly of various plots located at Mailly classified Grand Cru among the 17 villages at the top of the qualitative charter of the champagnes all above the 300 villages having right to the naming "champagne" for the wines harvested on this prestigious but closed area of production.

The harvest is manual and the berries are sorted in the grape harvesting room.

The cuvée is then bottled and placed in deep cellars called "crayères" and put on laths to perfect their ageing in contact with the cork to favour the exchange with the air

On the nose: hints of undergrowth and ferns followed by subtle notes of yellow fruits such as vine peach.

The mouth is well marked on the red berries like raspberry or strawberry, or even the black cherry of the Basque Country.

Food pairing : as an aperitif, served at 10-12°C in a tulip-shaped flute on foie gras canapés, either duck or goose. It is also perfect with scallops fried with fleur de sel from Guérande or Ile de Ré on a bed of leeks, or with turbot roasted in beurre blanc or on a Tandoori.
