Pale gold in colour with a lovely youthful glint, its mousse is superb and displays very fine and distinguished necklaces of bubbles. The nose is intense and expressive with notes of ripe citrus fruits, honey, dried fruit, and a very subtle touch of toast.
The palate is extremely generous, structured and perfectly balanced despite the wine’s relative youth, leading to a long, fresh and very pleasant finish. A very light and elegant cuvee which beautifully associates intense character and delicacy.
Ayala Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively with Grands Crus Chardonnays (rated 100% on the "échelle des crus” scale).
Dosage - 7.50 g/l
The wine is aged 6 years in cellars before disgorgement in order to develop complexity, intensity and roundness.
Pairing with food:
Very seductive as an aperitif, it is equally divine with St Jacques scallops, or a braised turbot with truffles or even with a crunchy dessert with aniseed pears. Ayala Blanc de Blancs is a wonderful delight for wine lovers.
"Champagne and caviar is a classic match and bubbles also happen to be fine with oysters. Do look to something that is poised and mineral rather than rich. Ayala’s Brut Majeur will give you pleasure on its own, while allowing the quality of your caviar and oysters to shine.”
Hamish Anderson, Daily Telegraph, 14 February 2009 (commenting on the 2002 vintage)
