…well we’ve done it again – another very ‘hard-to-find’ exclusive Champagne brought to you by Vin Vino Direct ..and this one has won 2 awards; BRONZE MEDAL WINNER at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2008 and BRONZE MEDAL WINNER at the International Wine Challenge 2008!
A family producer since 1860 founded by Edmond de Ayala located in the heart of the Champagne, a small jewel in a great terroir. Nicolas Klym has been the Cellar Master of Champagne Ayala for over 25 years and pays particular attention to the quality of the grapes in order to produce great cuvees.
Located in Aÿ, in the heart of the Montagne de Reims vineyards, Ayala naturally focuses on Grand Cru Pinot Noir for its Brut Majeur and its Vintage Brut. Ayala is a “small” house, the artisan of champagne-making. Its small size enables Ayala to produce “haute couture” by sourcing its grapes mainly in Grand Cru – (17 in total) and Premier Cru vineyards (44 in total out of 319 villages).
The origin of the grapes, the selection of only the very best juice (the cuvee), a special gift for blending, long ageing in the cellars and a true passion for wine : these are the elements that guarantee the quality of the champagne made at Ayala. Longer ageing on the lees gives Ayala a vibrant zesty style with strong emphasis on black Pinot Noir fruity flavour.
Tasting Notes: Pure 100% Pinot Noir grapes macerated to give an intense, salmon-coloured rosé Champagne that is packed with soft berry fruit flavours. Underlying these flavours is a persistent, creamy mousse, which lingers seductively in the mouth. Under the ownership today of Bollinger…hence the guaranteed quality.
