The origin of the grapes, the selection of only the very best juice (the cuvee), a special gift for blending, long ageing in the cellars and a true passion for wine : these are the elements that guarantee the quality of the champagne made at Ayala. Indeed, Ayala Champagne is above all considered as a wine, a great wine which has to fully express its aromas and its bouquet, a wine for wine lovers who share the same passion. That is why the back labels give all the important information about the cuvees as well as the date of disgorgement, wich enables the aficionados to better manage their cellar. Champagne Ayala invites you to discover a very complex range of wines. Read less

Intensely mineral structured wine with a taut character. There is great acidity here with green apple and citrus flavors. It s a dry food-friendly wine. Wine Enthusiast.

An open-knit texture is focused by firm acidity while rich notes of leesy bread dough and smoky roast nut add depth to flavors of kumquat, tangy apple, white peach and lemon peel, with an aromatic finish. Disgorged January 2010. Drink now through 2019.

Light yellow. Candied citrus fruits, white flowers and chalky minerals on the fragrant nose. Juicy, penetrating and pure, offering lively orange and lemon zest flavors with suggestions of honeysuckle and ginger. Shows a strong mineral quality on the penetrating finish, which features a hint of toasted almond. The bottling that I reviewed last year had no disgorgement date on the back label but this one does.

Blanc de Blancs Brut 1999 - Ayala: Blanc de Blancs Brut 1999 - Champagner von AyalaDieser feine Champagner besteht aus den besten Trauben des Chardonnay von Grand Crus-Lagen, mit hundert Prozent auf der Cru-Skala bewertet. Es ist ein beispielhaft ausdrucksvoller Champagner, welcher über sechs Jahre gereift ist, finessenreich und von auffallender Aromenvielfalt. Ein Champagner mit Zeit für einen besonderen Moment in Ihrem Leben. Man spürt heraus die besonderen Noten von Akazie, Lindenblüten und Zitrusfrüchten. Eine knusprige Brotkruste macht ihn uns so heimisch im Gefühl. Sein Eindruck ist erfrischend, er wirkt leicht cremig und doch so klar. Lange kann er dieses Gefühl bis zum Ende hin halten. Insgesamt gesehen ist der Blanc de Blancs Brut 1999 von Ayala ein sehr eleganter Tropfen mit prächtiger Mousse.Als Aperitif ist er eine wahre Versuchung. Aber auch zu St. Jacques Muscheln oder getrüffeltem Steinbutt sowie zu einem Birnendessert mit Anis und etwas Knusprigem wie Krokant ist er perfekt.Weingut: AyalaLand: FrankreichRegion: ChampagneRebsorte: ChardonnayInhalt: 0,75 lSäuregehalt: 5,75 g/l Restsüße: 8,0 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 4 - 6 Jahre ab Jahrgang Auszeichnungen für den Ayala Blanc de Blancs Brut:International Wine Challenge BronzeDecanter(Jg.1998)Decanter World Wine Award Silber Champagner - Sekt - Prickelndes > Frankreich > Champagne

Tasting Notes:

Pale gold in colour with a lovely youthful glint, the mousse of AYALA’s Blanc de Blancs is superb as is it’s distinguished necklaces of bubbles. The nose is intense and expressive with notes of ripe citrus, honey, dried fruit and a very subtle touch of toast. The palate is generous and perfectly balanced despite the wine’s relative youth. The even structure of the blend ensures a very pleasant finish on the palate. Blanc de Blancs is a light and elegant cuvee which beautifully harmonizes intense character and a delicate youthful touch.

AGEING The wine has been aged 6 years on the lees in order to develop complexity, intensity and depth.
