Champagne Mailly Grand Cru

A Grand Cru Estate

About the winery
The 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, planted to the two noble Champagne varietals, the Pinot Noir (75%) and the Chardonnay (25%). Blessed with a unique terroir, the vineyard is distinguished by a location that faces all four points of the compass. Most of the plots are north-facing, favouring subtle, well-balanced wines. Every plot is managed with the greatest of care, and a common devotion to superior-quality fruit. Nestling in the centre of these vine-covered slopes is the winery: a glass building built above seven different levels of cellars and a kilometre-long stretch of ‘crayères’ (chalk caves). This is where Mailly Grand Cru Champagne is made, exclusively from Mailly Champagne grapes.

History & Geography
After the ravages of World War I came the market crash of 1929 that plunged the world into Depression. In response, a group of intrepid winegrowers founded the association of Mailly Champagne producers, joining forces under a motto that sums up everything they stood for: ‘ à la tête par la main’ (together we can make it happen). They bravely determined to make richly expressive wines from fruit grown exclusively in the vineyards of their particular Grand Cru village. The vines today are lovingly tended by some 80 winegrowers, all descended from that handful of men who together established this estate and resolved to prove the magnificent potential of the Mailly terroir. With this goal in mind, they have for many years now applied sustainable methods of cultivation – good for the soil and good for the environment.
