Ayala Brut Nature was created based on the Brut Majeur blend to show the exceptionally high quality and purity of grapes used by the House to create its wines. Crus such as Cramant for Chardonnay, Aÿ and Bouzy for Pinot Noir and Venteuil for Pinot Meurier have been used. These villages are some of the highest rated on the Echelle des Crus scale.
Bright gold in colour, the nose displays precise citrus aromas and a hint of salinity. Complex yet clean, the palate bursts with grapefruit, white fruits and dry minerality. Wonderful acidity. This wine spends an average of 4 years ageing on its lees plus 3 months resting after disgorgement.
One of the original twenty-six Grandes Marques Champagne Houses, Champagne Ayala was acquired by the Bollinger family in 2005 and remains the archetype of a great Champagne House. Established in 1860 in Aÿ, and surrounded by the area’s most prestigious vineyards, the core range of cuvées epitomises the dry and elegant House style. Ayala were pioneers in introducing a drier style of wine during the second half of the 19th century. Cellar master Caroline Latrive carefully ensures the House style is maintained, crafting wines renowned for their precision, delicacy and quality.
