Description & Technical Information
-
Nicolas Maillart is a family run business, it is now the turn of the ninth generation to take the reins, in the form of Nicolas, who returned in 2003 after completing his studies in engineering and oenology. Nicolas is building on an almost three hundred year-old tradition and maintaining the house philosophy of bringing out the full potential of the Champagne terroirs in the wines. The Maison only have vines in the Premier and Grand Cru villages of the Montagne de Reims, mostly planted halfway up the hillside, ideally located for producing excellent quality wines. In keeping with the region’s typicity, their vineyards contain a high proportion of Pinot Noir vines (75%) together with Chardonnay. Maillart is one of the first Champagne estates labelled both HEV, High Environmental Value and Sustainable Viticulture. These awards recognise their environmental and economic performance taking account of biodiversity, pest strategy and water management.

This cuvée comes from the village of Villers Allerand, from the hamlet of Montchenot, the area between the small mountain and the large mountain and shares the geology of the two regions, sand, clay and chalk. The NV Blanc de Noirs cuvee is 50% barrel fermented with natural yeast fermentation followed by eight months on the lees before blending with the wines fermented in stainless steel. The malolactic fermentation was prevented.

Expert Reviews
90+/100
William Kelley
“Based on the 2016 vintage and disgorged in July 2020 with four grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Montchenot unwinds in the glass with notes of citrus rind, crisp orchard fruit and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, tangy and incisive, it's seamless and acid driven, with a pinpoint mousse and a sapid finish. I suspect it will show more complexity and generosity with some more time on cork.”
