One of the original twenty-six Grandes Marques Champagne Houses, Champagne Ayala was acquired by the Bollinger family in 2005 and remains the archetype of a great Champagne House.
Ayala were pioneers in introducing a drier style of wine during the second half of the 19th century. Cellar master Caroline Latrive carefully ensures the House style is maintained, crafting wines renowned for their precision, delicacy and quality.
Ayala Millésimé has power and balance which are the key words to define the wine, elaborated from a majority of Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus of the Montagne de Reims. Aged in their cellars for a long time until perfect maturity is reached, it is a structured and fullbodied wine showing, atypical Pinot Noir aromas of honey, acacia and chestnuts. A superb nose and a fabulous palate: this vintage is amongst the best of the 1990’s.
