Mailly Champagne Grand Cru 'Les Échansons' 1999
A true artisinal Champagne, finally one that doesn't taste like all the other big Champagne houses. This wine is rich with lots of yeast flavors, biscuit dough, toast and lots of red berries. This wine doesn't let you forget the difference between a Grand Cru Champagne and one that isn't.Add winemaker's notes
The village of Mailly is said to derive its name from the Latin Malliusacum. Grapes have been grown in Mailly for centuries, since before the building of Reims Cathedral in the 13th Century. Mailly wines were much appreciated by the church and nobility and graced all of the finest tables from the Middle Ages onward. Mailly winegrowers have witnessed the landmark events that shaped French History, contributing to the rising fortunes of Champagne in the 17th Century.

Fortunately, it's available in many place like Total Wine, Beltway Fine Wine, Corridor Wine etc. A great wine from an excellent Grand Cru Terroir which can compete with almost all the prestige cuvée. Very inexpensive too. Nose: aroma of pear and mandarins. Tasting: fruits, butter, spice in final. A great mineral component keep it quite fresh. A rare experience of great Grand Cru for a fraction of price.
