Mailly’s distinctive cuvee finds the right blend of crispness and softness, with delicate citrus notes balanced by velvety scents of roasted tropical fruit and sun-ripened wheat. The palate has a controlled vitality, with rich fruit accentuated by citrus zest. Balance and peppery structure last all the way to the chiseled, saline-infused finish.
Since its initial release more than 30 years ago, Mailly Blanc de Pinot Noir has established a milestone in a highly sought-after Champagne category.” This Champagne gives a distinctive touch to every event, making it great as an aperitif but also adaptable enough to pair with a complete dinner. Mailly Blanc de Pinot Noir is unique among single-vineyard cuvees, produced with consummate perfection to provide the greatest expression of its Grand Cru terroir.
A worthy match for foie gras in all its forms, but equally at ease with simpler fare – pan-fried seafood, roast turbot with white butter and particularly succulent poultry dishes such as free-range Bresse capon. Blanc de Pinot Noir pairs nicely with Indian food, particularly Tandoori-style dishes, for more exotic flavors. It goes great with cheese, thanks to all the delicious soft fruit!
Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright—but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
