“Brother and sister Antoine and Anne Malassagne have skillfully elevated this little house to the highest standards of quality. The style of the wines is geared more towards a ‘grower champagne’ than a ‘house’. Maturing in wood for certain vintages and low dosage everywhere produces vibrant and complex wines, and their origins in the vineyards are very recognisable. The range is comprehensive and very consistent. The word MAG followed by a number, which now appears on all of the non-vintage bottles, provides information on the base year of the cuvée, to which are added reserve wines kept in magnums under cork. This is a very important detail, and this additional effort gives the wines a touch of additional complexity. These are wines that thrive particularly well at the table.”

“This is a very unique range with a remarkable personality. Both vinous and precise, the wines are very successful, like the 1996 which, unlike many other wines from this vintage, retains fullness and flesh. But the MAG range is also noteworthy, whether it is the well-coated and intense Brut Nature MAG 15, the Chouilly MAG 16, a blanc de blancs with a savory and very salivating finish or the cuvée Intense MAG 16, which is all about finesse and balance. “
