The Brut Majeur is the best ambassor for the style of the Champagne House Ayala. This champagne is based on freshness and elegance with a low dosage and a 3 year ageing in a cellar. On the nose, it opens up on citrus, white flower and fresh juicy fruit notes. On the palate, the Brut Majeur is balanced: it combines freshness and vinosity. The finish is precise and fruity with a nice lingering.

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.
