Mailly Champagne in the department of Marne

SummerThe Grand Cru Champagne village of Mailly Champagne is in the department of Marne, close to both Reims and Epernay. It is the ideal location to explore the region, to walk in the vineyards or Montagne de Reims National Park. Visit the Geological Centre in the village and see in part what makes Champagne so unique, and meet the growers and producers who are the sole of Champagne. Mailly Champagne, set in the beautiful countryside of the Montagne de Reims National Park, is your ideal year round location to stay and explore the Champagne region.

WinterAlso visit the caves and sample the wine of Grand Cru Mailly Champagne, the first, pioneering champagne co-operative founded in 1929. The co-operative Mailly Champagne also produces extremely highly rated Mailly Coteaux Champenois Rouge. The next village to Mailly Champagne, Ludes, is the home of Ganard-Duchêne Champagne. In Canard-Duchêne cellars you will also find sculpture by the artist Michel Leburn.

Close to Mailly Champagne in the direction of Verzenay and Verzy, you have the windmill with no sails; it was used in the great war of 1914-1918 as an observation post. A great place to stop for the panoramic views across the vineyards to Reims, take a few pictures with your camera. The windmill today is owned by Mumm Champagne and used to entertain their clients. We then have the Le Phare de Verzenay, a lighthouse built in the middle of vineyards in 1909 to promote the J. Goulet Champagne, it is now a great wine museum and exhibition centre, with again some amazing views.
