Lemony and complex, rich with good length.
Tasting Notes: Light gold in colour, with a delicate mousse. The nose unveils expressive notes of citrus, florals and white fruits. Well balanced with a delicate complexity, Chardonnay adds a lively, fresh fruitiness on the palate, while the Pinot Noir gives the wine richness and length.
“This is taut and linear with lovely citrus and pear fruit. It has nice texture with some lemony brightness, a hint of cherry and nice precision, showing really good balance and nice acidity.” 91 points Jamie Goode, WineAnorak.com April 2022
A Non-Vintage Brut is always the best expression of the style of a great Champagne House and the origin of the Crus gives a good indication of the quality of the wine. Here Crus such as Cramant for Chardonnay, Aÿ and Bouzy for Pinot Noir and Venteuil for Pinot Meurier have been used. These villages are some of the highest rated on the Echelle des Crus scale. The wine spends an average of 3 years on its lees. Its extended ageing in cellar and low dosage makes it suitable for any occasion. Representative of the AYALA style, the Chardonnay reveals purity and elegance. The same quest for a clean and pure style is expressed through the low dosage and stainless-steel vat microvinification, which ensures that the primary aromas are respected.
Food Match : Ideal as an aperitif, Brut Majeur is also the perfect accompaniment to any course of a meal: seafood, poultry as well as cheeses such as Coulommiers, Chaource and Brieterrines and fruit based desserts.
