Rosé N°8 is a limited edition Cuvee, and a true reflection of the innovation Champagne Ayala has been undergoing recently.
Crafted exclusively from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, Rosé N°8 is first and foremost a great Champagne, made from grapes picked during the exceptional 2008 harvest, already celebrated as one of the best of the last few decades.
The name refers both to the symbolism of the number 8 - of renewal and creation - and to the 8 years necessary for the development of this wine. The result is a festive and refined wine, perfectly representative of Champagne Ayala's fresh and elegant style. This cuvee also shines thanks to its creative and innovative graphic conception: the distinguished label and original lines of the gift case echo the femininity and modernity that characterize the House.
A light shade of powder pink, clear and bright, with abundant bubbles. A subtle nose, it is fresh and refined, revealing delicate aromas of strawberries, raspberries, blood orange and blackcurrant. The attack is precise and sharp, leading to a subtle, tightly knit palate, featuring a lot of freshness and finesse. Notes of red berries and Bartlett pear, showing remarkable minerality through chalk and graphite notes. On the finish it is delicate and fine, elegant with a sophisticated finish, like a finely crafted, mineral lace. A perfect match for a Summer salad, Asian inspired Duck or Salmon dish. And for a dessert, a refreshing Red Berry inspired dish!
