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.

What is the history of Maison de Champagne Mailly?

When the Great Depression hit France in 1929, a total of 25 winegrowing families decided to face up to it by joining forces. They founded the Société de Producteurs de Mailly Champagne and chose to make Champagne wines using only grapes from their village classified as Grand Cru, with the aim of glorifying this terroir already considered exceptional at the time. Brought together by these difficult beginnings, the winemakers succeeded in making their Champagne known throughout France, and from the 1960s onwards, the commercial expansion of Maison Mailly became a great success.

What is the terroir of Maison Mailly?

The village of Mailly is surrounded by the famous Grands Crus de Ludes, Verzenay and Verzy. Maison Mailly currently has 70 hectares of vines in this village alone. The grape varieties are 75% Pinot Noir and... See more ...

Description Mailly l'Intemporelle 2016.

The Cellar Master of the Champagnes Mailly reveals in this perfect symphony all his mastery to skillfully compose, and in perfect balance, this Champagne coming exclusively from parcels classified Grand Cru exclusively and planted for 60% Pinot Noir grapes and for 40% Chardonnay grapes 

This first pressing only cuvée was elaborated with the 2016 harvest exclusively.

The best plots planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes were selected by the Maitre de Cave during the manual harvest to chisel out this masterpiece.

The number of bottles available is limited and to ensure traceability each one is numbered.

La robe is brilliant and seductive with its elegant gold color.

The first attack on the nose is very floral with touches of white spring flowers such as those of cherry, pear, peach and apple trees where citrus aromas such as clementine from Corsica or pink grapefruit from Florida or Israel blend elegantly, with chalky and slightly brioche mineral notes in the background.

On the palate: the first perception is very small red fruits like wild strawberry, or raspberry, which elegantly fade to notes of yellow-fleshed fruits like peach, Alsace mirabelle plum, yellow vine peach or nectarine. The finish is mineral and very long.  

This is a Champagne aperitif dinner wine to be served at around 10 to 12°C with shrimp, langoustine or crayfish tapas, lobster or crayfish medallions. Even better with salt-crusted sea bass, turbot fillets, or white truffle risotto from northern Italy.

We suggest cellar aging away from light and vibrations, bottles laid down with a humidity level of around 70%. Successive tastings will allow us to measure its qualitative evolution until its apogee.
