Palate Profile

Owned by Bollinger since 2005, Champagne AYALA is one of the longest-established champagne Houses; it has been based in Aÿ, at the heart of the great champagne vineyards, since it was founded over 150 years ago. Independent and family-owned, it is still today the archetype of a great and historic House, producing top quality wines which are enjoyed throughout the world for their freshness and elegance.

The fruit of a tailor-made blend, Brut Majeur includes more than 70 crus from all of the Champagne region. This exceptional sourcing makes the most of the terroirs’ richness: Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Aube, Vitryat, or even Sézannais.

The NV Brut Majeur shows lovely balance in an approachable, up-front style well-suited to near-term drinking. Clean, mineral notes add a sense of proportion on the fresh, vibrant finish. 

Critic Awards

Ayala is looking very good and offers some genuine depth and complexity for this entry-level blend, driving impressive concentration into a savory and defined style.

There’s a firm, chalky edge to this mineral Champagne, and mouthwatering flavors of candied lemon peel, green apple, crystallized honey and biscuit. This has an elegant texture and an overall sense of style.

Now owned by the Bollinger family, Ayala’s Champagnes have seen great improvement in recent years. This non-vintage Brut is complex, with its dry character given weight by a hint of toast, almonds and a taut aftertaste.

Ayala delights

It is many years since I last drank Ayala champagne and I had forgotten how sublime it was. It’s now back at the top of my favourite champagne list.
