The village of Mailly, which comes from the Latin Malliusacum, was classified Grand Cru at the beginning of the 19th century. It is also a village surrounded by the famous grands crus of Ludes, Verzenay and Verzy and 14 kilometers from Reims.

After the enormous damage caused by the war of 1870 under Napoleon III, the phylloxera crisis in the years 1880-1900 and the First World War and especially to its eastern region and its region of Champagne where the French staff had based its headquarters, the crisis of 1929 arrives with its Black Thursday which will extend to all countries and therefore active or potential markets.

To face this stock market crisis first and then financial, some Mailly winegrowers will face up to it and join forces. They then founded the Société de Producteurs de Mailly Champagne and decided to make champagne wines from their own grapes from their village classified as Grand Cru.

To date, the Mailly estate has 70 hectares in the Grand Cru village of Mailly located in the center of the Montagne de Reims Natural Park.

In accordance with the legislation, Champagne Mailly Grand Cru produces its champagnes only with Pinot Noir for 75% and Chardonnay for 25%.

In the basement, the House has 7 floors of cellars and 1 kilometer of chalk pits and some of its cellars were dug in the chalk from 1929 to 1965 by the founding winegrowers who at the same time built vaulted cellars ideal for aging.
