Ayala Brut Majeur

£32.19
Grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier

Established in 1820, the House of Ayala has an incredible history, with a pioneering and visionary personality at its helm, Edmond de AYALA always sought to go the extra mile. The name AYALA comes from the champenois village of Aÿ, where the House has been located since its creation. A pioneer in introducing a drier style, Edmond had the flair to launch “dry champagne” in 1865, with only 21 g/L. A bold statement in favour of purity, contrasting with the traditional French dosage of more than 150 g/L at that time, but it laid the foundations of the Champagne style we know today. Bollinger acquired AYALA in 2005, reaffirming its place in the Champagne Rolodex of stars. Brut Majeur perfectly represents the AYALA style. The Chardonnay reveals all of its purity and elegance, enhanced by Pinot Noirs and Meuniers, from the best origins. The fruit of a tailor-made blend, Brut Majeur includes more than 65 crus from all of the Champagne region. This exceptional sourcing makes the most of the terroirs’ richness: Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Aube, Vitryat, or even Sézannais.

Tasting notes:
Expressive notes of citrus, florals and white fruits. Well balanced with a delicate complexity, Chardonnay adds a lively, fresh fruitiness on the palate, whilst Pinot Noir gives the wine richness and length.
