History of the vineyard

The village of Mailly is said to derive its name from the Latin Malliusacum.

Grapes have been grown in Mailly for centuries, since before the building of Reims Cathedral in the 13th Century.

Mailly wines were much appreciated by the church and nobility and graced all of the finest tables from the Middle Ages onward.

Mailly winegrowers have witnessed the landmark events that shaped French History, contributing to the rising fortunes of Champagne in the 17th Century.
