Viticulture, in the French municipality of Mailly, has been attested since the 13th century and it also seems that the wines of this area, belonging to the department of the Marne, have always been appreciated, finding recognition and evidence in the best medieval and ecclesiastical tables of the Middle Ages. The maison Mailly, classified among the Gran Cru of Champagne since 1920, is closely linked to these historic traditions.
In fact, the Mailly winery was founded in 1929, from an initiative aimed at facing the crisis deriving from the devastation of the First World War and the collapse of the markets. As a reaction, a group of winemakers decided to found the maison, starting at the same time to dig the underground cellars, which today extend for about a kilometer.
Currently, the heirs of the founders of the cooperative manage the company, giving the winery its own grapes, from which are born unique and high quality Champagne. Seventy hectares in total, divided into 480 plots, for a production that is around 500 thousand bottles a year: the Mailly Champagne are born from a terroir in which the soil where the vineyards are planted - rich in gypsum, which has the merit of regulating the temperature and humidity - plays an important role, as also fundamental is the care and devotion with which all the practices are followed between the rows and in the cellar. Refined and elegant wines, corresponding to a range of labels that can respond to the most diverse needs.
