Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs is produced in small quantities in exceptional years only and fully expresses the superb calibre of great Chardonnay fromt he best crus of the Côte des Blancs.

After 6 years aging in Champagne Ayala cellars, remarkable mineraltiy and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can accompany a variety of flavoursome dishes including poultry and fish, or be served on its own to celebrate special occasions.

Tasting Notes:

Champagne Ayala Le Blanc de Blancs 2013 is made from 100% Chardonnay from 62% Grands Crus and 38% Premiers Cru grapes aged for 6 years average on lees, and only 6 grams / litre of dosage.

A bright, pale yellow champagne with white gold lints and a very fine bubble and delicate but still very expressive aromas of fresh pomelo, white fruits, lime tree, frangipani flowers and delicate hints of pineapple and ginger.

The palate is striking right from the start - voluptuous and vibrant, showing a silky texture with a lively edge, and finishing with a balanced bittersweet flavour.

Champagne Ayala Le Blanc de Blancs releases notes of passion fruits, citrus fruit, ripe white fruit such as vine peaches, and subtle notes of acacia honey that bring a velvety sensation.

The long finish is tightly wound on the pure line of characteristic chalky minerality for which the Côte des Blancs is famous.

Food Matching:

Le bland de blancs 2013 is a great epicurian apéritifs on its own, but will also pair beautifully with seared sea scallops with preserved meyere leom or with a turbot fillet with a seaweed-infused beurre blanc sauce.
