The wine is a bright yellow to straw color with abundant persistent pinpoint bubbles. The very enticing nose has green apples, freshly baked biscuits, minerals, lemon zest and orange blossoms. Tart apples, minerals and lemon zest grab hold initially, slowly allowing yeasty notes and a floral element to slip into the picture. The finish has good length and leaves your mouth watering for another sip.
About the Winery
The Maillart family’s vine growing practices can be traced back to 1753, when their ancestors grew vines in the neighboring village of Chamery. Nicolas, the ninth generation, took over the reins in 2003 after completing his studies. He is thus perpetuating an almost three hundred year old tradition and maintains their house philosophy of bringing out the full potential of the terroir of Champagne, maintaining strong biodiversity in the vineyards with minimal use of chemicals and nearly organic farming practices. Nowadays , we can easily consider Nicolas Maillart's vineyards as one of the most daring one. In order to increase the identity of the wines , Nicolas does not hesitate to maintain carefully one of the unique plot of Pinot Noir "Franc de Pieds" (ungrafted vines) of the appellaton. Moreover, his focus on promoting a certain genetical diversity using a maximum of "Massale Selections " is certainy one of the best way to develop an outstanding aromatic diversity.
