Cuvee Perle d'Ayala Nature is made in a great vintage year from a large majority of Grand Cru Chardonnay and a small proportion of Pinot Noir, also from Grand Crus. A great Champagne revealing its most natural beauty.
As clear as crystal, its colour is pale golden yellow and displays a very light amber glint. Great finesse of the bubbles. The nose is fresh and offers a lovely bouquet of white fruits and citrus.
On the palate the wine is generous and fresh with delicate and subtle notes of vanilla which reveal the ageing under natural cork. The notes of the nose then linger on the finish with remarkable freshness and finesse.
This wine has been aged for at least 5 years in cellars. The real cork used for this long ageing allows the best control of oxydo-reduction and ensures the development of very delicate and complex aromas.
It is a very rare practice today in Champagne and the bottle is known for its famous 'bague carrée' (square ring).
Made out of the 2002 harvest, this Cuvee Perle Nature is a very exclusive blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, all the grapes being selected from Grand Cru & Premiers Crus villages.
ABV - 12.5%
Dosage - 6.5 g/l
Its freshness goes well along with delicate entrees such as carpaccio of duck foie gras, pastry of salmon and red mullet, raviolis of ris de veau and lobster. It will also pair with fish in sauce.
"Very toasty, rich nose is complex and a little herby. The palate is bold and intense with lively acidity and lovely complexity. Very fresh with a herby edge. A thrillingly good wine. 94/100"
