Champagne Ayala Majeur Brut NV

Champagne, FranceChampagne Ayala is one of the longer-established champagne houses, founded over 150 years ago in Aÿ. In 2005, the Bollinger family bought this neighbouring estate and set upon a resurgence for the brand, with a complete restoration of winemaking facilities and a bold new direction. This blend of 45/35/20 Chardonnay / Pinot Noir / Pinot Meunier was sourced from 70 crus. At blending, there are 120 different vats to work with, all fermented in stainless. The final blend spent 3 years on the lees, and was dosed with 7 g/L. Strawberry brioche kissed with cherry are wrapped with toast, padded with a cushion of lees, and brightened with lemony acidity. Friendly and fruity is a lovely wine best matched with lighter fare like mushroom or salmon dishes.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Prices:
