Ayala

Brut Majeur is the result of the blending of a particular harvest with quality reserve wines. Aÿ being the capital of Pinot Noir, this noble grape is always dominant thus ensuring the vinosity, the fullness and the intensity of the wine. Chardonnay gives elegance, liveliness and finesse, and Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fresh and fruity note. The cellar master is an artist, and every new cuvee he creates is a work of art, the result of very rigorous selections among innumerable possibilities. His art consists in recreating every year a great wine which is true to the style of the House, with the subtle balance between roundness, elegance and vivacity. The low dosage, 9 grams per litre, reveals the delicate nuances of the aromas and the bouquet. Brut Majeur is ideal served as an aperitif, however its vinosity and its personality make it also a wonderful accompaniment throughout a meal.

Wine Enthusiast

For lovers of light, fresh apéritif style Champagnes, this Ayala is ideal. Its hints of apricots and ripe green plums still don't detract from the fact that it is dry, with only a light hint of dosage and fresh yeast. It does seem that the blend is getting younger so a few months' bottle aging would be good.

Score: 90. —Roger Voss, December 01, 2008.

Wine Spectator

Firm, with a lively bead and a smoky overtone accenting the flavors of sun-dried black cherry, pickled ginger and strawberry pâte de fruit. Fruit and pastry notes grace the moderate finish. Disgorged January 2013. Drink now. 55,000 cases made.

Score: 90. —Alison Napjus, 2013.
