“Ayala specializes in dry Champagnes”
“Ayala specializes in dry Champagnes, and this is the house’s extreme example. It has just the right amount of bottle age to soften its intense acidity and develop some toastiness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but a few more months in bottle would make it even better.”
Brut Nature, cellar-aged for almost 4 years, demonstrates to perfection the high quality of grapes used by the House to craft its wines, and its remarkable expertise in vinification. Being non-dosage, its purity and precision make it an ideal partner for seafood, in particular raw fish and shellfish, or oysters.
Ayala is one of the most exciting stories in Champagne today, almost the definition of a boutique Champagne producer. Independently owned, a small team of 12 with what must be the youngest head of a producer in Champagne, every step of production from grape reception to labeling tightly controlled in their jewel of a facility, and above all, an incredible precision in crafting Chardonnay-focused wines that deliver immense pleasure, freshness, and elegance.
