Champagne Ayala Brut Majeur NV
Ayala is one of the original twenty-six Grandes Marques. Today owned by Bollinger, Ayala produce fine and elegant Champagnes, epitomised by the classy Brut Majeur NV.
Brut Majeur from Ayala is a wonderfully dry and elegant Champagne. Pale gold in the glass, this has a very fine mousse. Delicately aromatic with citrus, blossom and white peach notes, alongside hints of honeysuckle, the palate is fresh and quite dry in style, with apple and peach fruit, alongside notes of hazelnut, and a long balanced finish.
Ayala is one of the longest established champagne houses, and one of the original twenty-six Grandes Marques, based in Aÿ in the heart of the region. Pioneers of producing the now expected drier style, this house is synominous with the roaring twenties. Since 2005 Ayala has been under the ownership and guidence of Bollinger, and with increased investment coupled with access to some of the best vineyards, and an individual hand-made approach, these wines offer the highest quality but also great value for money.
