Description

Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse. This wine is rich and aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. Pinot Noir gives this wine richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Cotes des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives this wine an appealing fruitiness and roundness. The origin of the cru's gives a good idea of the quality of the wine... Pinot Noir: Ay, Mareuil sur Ay, Louvois, Bouzy, Tours sur Marne, Chigny les Roses, Rilly, Ecueil. Chardonnay: Cramant, Chouilly, Cuis, Vertus. Pinot Meunier: Venteuil, Cerseuil, St Martin d'Ablois, Chavot. These villages are ranked at the very high level of 94 to 95% on the echelle des crus scale. Ideal as an aperitif, Champagne Ayala Brut can also match a whole meal. It will pair perfectly with seafood, scallops, lobster, crab, fresh or grilled fish, fish terrines, salmon or beef carpaccio. Sushis and Asian food are also a good pairing. Cheeses : Soft and blue cheeses: Boursault, Coulommiers, Chaource, brie, Brillat-Savarin.
