With a viticultural history dating back in the 16th century, today the Maillart family is perpetuating the Champagne tradition thanks to Nicolas, the 9th generation, who took over from his father in 2003. The 16-hectares vineyard is exclusively located on the Montagne de Reims, on 3 villages of Premier and Grand Crus only, and planted with a majority of Pinot Noir. A later harvest to get deep and complex base wines makes Nicolas Maillart’s Champagne very distinctive from other producer. As part of an environmental approach, Champagne Nicolas Maillart is certified sustainable (HVE – High Environmental Value). In 2009, they invested in solar pannels supplying 90% of their needs.
