Winemaker Notes

Lots of complexity and subtlety in the flavors. Long finish. Vivacity. Notes of citrus, baked lemon and pear. It is ready to serve but can also wait for years.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay - from a single vineyard plot and an exceptional year.

An excellent effort, the 2005 Michel Mailliard Brut Mont Vergon shows tremendous vitality and complexity. The wine's generous green apple, dried citrus, and light brioche flavors make it an excellent main entrée bubbly. (Tasted: August 29, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Michel Mailliard, France

At Champagne Michel Mailliard, the love for land and vines and the skills acquired through the work of our ancestors – winemakers, are reflected today in our vineyards as well as in our champagnes.

Current generations are guided by an innate ability and rigour and by the teaching that great wines can be elaborated only when the grapes are of a high quality. And for that, they need to take the greatest care of the land and the vines.

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.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
