Estate::

Mailly Grand Cru Estate extends across 70 hectares, entirely located in the Grand Cru village of Mailly Champagne, at the heart of the Montagne de Reims nature park.
The vineyard is divided into 480 plots, most north-facing, favouring subtle, well-balanced wines. Nestling in the centre of these vine-covered slopes is the winery; a glass building built above the cellars and a kilometre-long stretch of ‘crayères’ (chalk caves).

Grape varieties::

Pinot Noir 75%, Chardonnay 25%

Vinification::

Hand harvested mid September under cool, dry conditions, preserving the ripeness and balanced acidity in the grapes.  Fermentation in thermo regulated inox stainless steel vats.

ageing::

Ageing on laths in traditional chalk caves.

appearance::

Brilliant golden colour

nose::

Lemon and orange blossom mingled with hints of brioche.

taste::

Toasty, nutty core bringing the fruit into focus.  Refined texture and vibrant character.

Food pairing::

Perfectly paired with scallops or steamed fillet of turbot in a frothy citrus sauce.

Closure::

Natural cork
