Champagne Ayala Rose Majeur NV
Ayala is one of the original twenty-six Grandes Marques. Today owned by Bollinger, Ayala produce fine and elegant Champagnes.
A delicate cherry hue with a hint of copper. The mousse is fine and persistent. The nose displays aromas of red fruits (strawberries, raspberries and morello cherries) together with nuances of spice. On the palate, the wine is light, fresh and well balanced. It has a rich, lasting finish with flavours of red gooseberry and raspberry lingering. Feminine and generous.
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.
Made predominantly with Chardonnnay and an addition of a small proportion
of Pinot Noir, from the best Crus of Montagne de Reims, Rosé Majeur offers
finesse and elegance. Low dosage allows the House style to be expressed with
the wine spending an average of 3 years ageing on its lees and resting for four
to six months after disgorgement.
