The purity and elegance of a Brut champagne by Ayala

The estate

The Ayala Champagne House was founded in 1860 by Edmond de Ayala and his wife. For generations, the members of the Ayala family have been committed to producing greatly elegant champagnes that are appreciated beyond borders, notably across the Channel, where Ayala has been the official supplier for the British crown. In 2005, the Ayala Champagne House was taken over by the family company Bollinger.

The wine

Ayala’s Brut Majeur cuvee is made from more than 70 crus from Champagne.

Winemaking and aging

Each cru, grape variety and year are vinified separately within one of the house’s 120 tanks to preserve their complete aromatic richness. Ayala’s Brut Majeur is subject to ageing on lees in the cellar for 3 years on average. Its dosage is 7g/liter.

Blend

Ayala’s Brut Majeur is made from a blend of Chardonnay (45%), Pinot Noir (35%) and Pinot Meunier (20%).

Tasting

Color

The wine is a beautiful, clear gold color. The effervescence is fine and persistent.

Nose

The expressive and delicate nose unveils fragrances of citrus, flowers and fruits with white flesh.

Palate

Fresh and wonderfully full-bodied, the palate seduces with its freshness, fruitiness, length and balance.

Food and wine pairings

Ideal as an aperitif, Ayala’s Brut Majeur goes perfectly with white fish, shellfish, poultry and even a cheese platter.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The NV Brut Majeur shows lovely balance in an approachable, up-front style well-suited to near-term drinking. Clean, mineral notes add a sense of proportion on the fresh, vibrant finish. The blend is 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, 80% of which is from the 2004 vintage, while the rest of the wine is composed of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reserve wines. Disgorged January, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.
