Mailly Champagne Grand Cru 'Les Échansons' 1999

Member Review by Matt Walker:

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.

Mailly:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

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.
