Ayala Brut Majeur Champagne NV 75cl Gift Boxed 12% ABV
Ayala Brut Majeur Champagne NV Gift Boxed
From the sister house of Bolllinger. Presented in a branded Ayala Gift box.
This Non Vintage Brut is pale gold in colour with a fine mousse, rich and aromatic on the nose.
On the palate the Champagne is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity.
Pinot Noir (45%) gives this wine richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Cotes des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives this wine an appealing fruitiness and roundness.

Chardonnay: Cramant, Chouilly, Cuis, Vertus. Pinot Meunier: Venteuil, Cerseuil, St Martin d'Ablois, Chavot. These villages are ranked at the very high level of 94 - 95% on the Echelle des crus scale.
