Located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, the Mailly Grand Cru Champagne House is unique due to both its terroir, which provides finesse and balance to the wines, and its contemporary history.
The year 1929 is marked by the creation of the Société de Producteurs de Mailly Champagne, established as a means to face the economic crisis that arose after the First World War. Several winegrowers joined forced and focused on producing sophisticated vintages which highlight their terroir, a Grand Cru Classé en 1920.
Fresh and expressing a beautiful minerality, Mailly Grand Cru Champagne House’s wines are renowned for their balance, their bold style and their great elegance.
The Mailly Grand Cru Champagne House watches over a 70-hectare terroir, spread over more than 600 plots. 80 winegrowers pay rigorous attention to this exceptional terroir.
This Brut Réserve by Mailly Grand Cru embodies the signature style of the house’s wines. 30 to 40% reserve wines, from 10 vintages, are added to the blend and are matured in tanks and tuns. The dosage is 7 to 8 g/litre.
