What year was a perfect 10 for champagne - 1980 ? 87 ? 90 ? 96 ?

Can you advise please ?

Does anyone know where I can buy any Mailly (except the BB&R blend)in the UK or Ireland


I know their cuvées are a bit hard to find in France too, although it's not a small Champagne house. I called them and there's only Berry Brothers. You might ask if BB&R if they can have a wider range from Mailly. Mailly Champagne is for me an excellent producer which is still little known.

Hi Bertrand, I eventually found a source for the NV, I don't know if it is just my imagination but I think the BB&R label cuvee is not as good as the Mailly label. Will try a comparison this weekend to check. Unfortunately Winehound only stock the NV and they also charge £25+ for delivery of a case to N Ireland but it's free delivery in the rest of the UK. This is a very poor marketing decision for Winehound as this is one of my favorite champagnes and I would buy twice as much if delivery was less. I have introduced some friends to Mailly and they also think it is one of the best that they have tasted but the extra delivery charge puts them off buying. I'll just have to keep on looking for a supplier of the other cuvees.
