Ayala Brut Majeur Reviews
Notes by Rocky
Blend: 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier.
Style: Fresh and elegant with a refreshing minerality and a noticeable crispness due to its low dosage (the level of sugar added prior to bottling), 7g/l of sugar versus, for example, Moët & Chandon’s 9g/l.
Food-match suggestion: This not only makes an excellent apéritif, it is also a great partner for shellfish, fish and chips, and even after-dinner cheese. In fact, as the Champenois do, you can serve it with every course.
Comment: Non-vintage brut is the bottling by which every Champagne house should be judged. Aged for more than three years before bottling, this will please those who like their Champagne dry and complex: a hidden gem.
Producer's Tasting Note
Colour: Light gold, with abundant and fine bubbles.
Nose: Open and expressive. Delicate, unveiling notes of citrus, flowers and white fruits.
Palate: Balanced, combining freshness and vinosity. Precise, fruity and characterised by a long finish.
