Blanc de blace 2012 Ayala Champagne

The Essence of Chardonnay from an Exceptional Vintage Year.
Le Blanc de Blancs  is produced in small quantities in exceptional years only
and fully expresses the superb calibre of great Chardonnay from the best
crus of the Côte des Blancs. After 6 years ageing in our cellars, remarkable
minerality and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can
accompany a variety of fl avoursome dishes including poultry and fi sh, or
be served on its own to celebrate a special occasion.

THE TECHNICAL DATA
• Average 6-years ageing on the lees

• Alcohol Level: 12%

THE TASTING NOTES
• Colour: Bright, light yellow, with a very fine and abundant bubble.
• Nose: Delicate, but already very expressive, the nose features a great
aromatic freshness, with notes of lemon, white fruits, yellow plums
and frangipani.
• Palate: Right from the start, it is light, yet voluptuous and vibrant,
showing a silky texture with a touch of raciness. It features notes of
citrus fruit and white fl owers, culminating in a long fi nish, tightly
wound on a pure line of the chalky minerality that Côte des Blancs is
famous for.
THE FOOD PAIRINGS
Le Blanc de Blancs 2012 is a great epicurian apéritif on its own, but will
also pair beautifully with seared sea scallops with preserved Meyer lemon
or with a turbot fi llet with a seaweed-infused beurre blanc sauce.


The Wine Advocate 92 Rating, Disgorged with six grams per liter dosage after six years on the lees, Ayala's 2012 Blanc de Blancs is a pure, generous wine, bursting from the glass with expressive aromas of brioche, crisp yellow orchard fruit, beeswax and dried white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vibrant, with a broad, attractively vinous attack, brisk acids and a fine, youthfully exuberant mousse, concluding with a long finish.12%

 

 

 

Champagne AYALA has always been a small, independent and family-run business. After the Second World War the House went through a rather quiet period as its leaders occupied important positions in Champagne trade associations. In 2005 the Bollinger family bought this fine estate, with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. This was the start of a resurgence for Champagne AYALA, with complete restoration of winemaking facilities and the arrival of new staff. The House employs today about 15 people, keeping the family spirit of its origins.
