Champagne Ayala Majeur Brut NV

Champagne, FranceMajeur averages at least three years of ageing on the lees with a dosage of only 7g/litre of sugar. The blend is 40/40/20 of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, but it tastes more like a blancs de blanc showing a light nutty, toasted, baked apple nose with scents of white flowers. The attack is fresh but not aggressive with a drier, brut style finish. There is fine concentration and persistence on the finish with excellent acidity to keep it taut and precise. A flexible sparkler that is perfect in an apéritif role or you can take it to dinner white fish, shellfish, poultry or a cheese platter.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Prices:
