Mailly is known for excellence around the world. Mailly is the only winemaker to source all of their grapes from grand cru villages in Champagne. The only time a Champagne can be labeled as grand cru is if the producer sources all of their grapes from grand cru villages. The same is applied to Mailly’s Grand Cru Les Echansons Millésime.
The Les Echansons is expertly crafted and delivers a master class in balance and winemaking expertise. It is bold, forward, and pungent, offering a delicious dryness that is slightly offset by the slightest of sweetness. It offers a lingering, silky foam and strong bubbles that are playful and refreshing. To the eye: beautiful, light golden yellows are observed. On the nose: citrus notes and candied peel are married with a nice, subtle spiciness. On the palate: bold and big, this delicious champagne delivers notes of citrus but emphasizes minerality a lot more.
This delicious champagne is refreshing and light. It works as the perfect aperitif and pairs wonderfully with fresh shellfish.
