The home of Champagne Michel Mailliard can be found in Vertus, the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Vertus is the first commune of Champagne in the Marne department and its terroir of 500 hectares is classified as Premier Cru.
Today, the third and fourth generations take care of our vineyard of 23 hectares, half of which are in Vertus and its surroundings and, for the most part, planted with Chardonnay.
Although the wine tradition is the thread of our family history and while the first official references date back to 1894, the real founder of the House is Alexis Mailliard, born more than a century ago.
While progressing individually, Alexis played a key role in the development of the region’s economy through the defense of the smaller winegrowers of Vertus.
This great man left to his son his vision and his expertise that was recognized by wine makers and traders alike, but also his love for a job well done and the ambition he shared with all around him.
Land and work
The love for the land and the vineyard and the skills acquired by the work of our ancestors – winemakers are reflected today in our vineyard as in our champagnes.
The current generations are guided by an innate know-how and the teaching that the great wines are elaborated only with high quality grapes. We only get them if we take the greatest care of the soil and the vine plants.
The art of making
There are techniques and know-how involved in the development of our wines, but according to Michel Mailliard, Champagne is also a cultural and more and more an emotional matter.
It is the art to build on the land and take advantage of its own typicality. In most cases, it is the art of blending, of creating a wine greater than the sum of its components. However, when the balance between flavours and harmonies is perfect without any intervention, it is the art of accepting nature’s superiority.
