Mailly Grand Cru 2009 Les Echansons Brut = 94/100– Cellar Selection
This mature wine shows plenty of toastiness as well as ripe apple flavors and a light texture. Richness and ripe fruits give the wine softness while keeping acidity. Ready to drink, the wine will be even better from 2021.
Exception Blanche 2009 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs = 94/100
The tight, mineral edge has softened just enough to make this Champagne drinkable now, although it will certainly age. Crisp apple and grapefruit flavors will develop well and the wine will be at its best from 2022.
Mailly Grand Cru Extra Brut Millésime 2012 = 93/100
This vintage wine is the driest of the Champagnes from this producer. While it is still young, fruitiness and a tautly mineral texture give it great sophistication. The lemon and apple flavors will mature further over time and the wine will be at its best from 2022.
Mailly Grand Cru 2011 L’Intemporelle Rosé Grand Cru Brut = 93/100
The wine is beautiful in its pale color and in its distinguished texture and balance between fruit and mature flavors. With acidity still intact and the layers of red-currant fruits still attractive, the touch of toast adds to the complexity. Drink now.
Mailly Grand Cru NV Rosé de Mailly Brut = 91/100
Almost pure Pinot Noir with just a touch of Chardonnay, this Champagne offers bright red fruits as well as crisp acidity and a tight, mineral texture. The wine has enough bottle age to be ready to drink.
