MAILLY Grand Cru
EXTRA BRUT 2011
Pinot Noir Grand Cru 75%
Chardonnay Grand Cru 25%
Matured for a minimum of 6 years on the lees
Mailly Extra Brut Millésime is made with very low dosage – just enough to balance the acidity of the year’s production. A perfectly judged sweetness that, like the wine itself, reflects decades of Mailly savoir-faire.
A whiff of peat smoke lends mature expression to this majority Pinot Noir bottling. Notes of toast and stone fruit conjure up impressions of woodland spice, framed by a more profound sense of vinosity. The palate shows wonderful depth: citrus on entry, with plenty of firmness on the mid palate and the wine’s vibrant fruit character showing through. The very low dosage contributes to the sense of invigorating harmony.
Mixed cases permitted in multiples of 6x750ml. Free delivery countrywide.
