Description & Technical Information
-
Nicolas Maillart sorts his wines according to the type of soil and age of the vines. The wines ferment in oak barrels and don't undergo malolactic fermentation. This natural approach is the key in the cellar as well; the wines are fermented using wild yeasts and are neither filtered nor cold-stabilised. Maillart is one of the first Champagne estates labelled both HVE, High Environmental Value and sustainable viticulture.

A single vineyard "Les Jolivettes" planted in 1987 with a massale selection and the vineyard aspect tilts gently due south; the grapes are harvested and pressed and the juice is vinified in small oak barrels and rested 6 months on lees before bottling in April following the harvest.

Tasting Note: The aromatics leap out the glass with some very pretty fruits like redcurrant and dried raspberry, beautiful. In the mouth you see more with peach and apricot and just a hint of pineapple and blackcurrant with underlying spice. Good weight of fruit and finishes fresh and light. After several minutes in the glass you see the chalky and mineral character coming forward; the soils personality influencing what we taste. Tasted by Nick September 2020 and rated 17.5/20. The best vintage so far released from this vineyard.
