Ayala : Rosé Majeur

A fruity and delicate Rosé champagne

The estate

The Ayala Champagne House was founded in 1860 by Edmond de Ayala and his wife. For generations, the members of the Ayala family have been committed to producing greatly elegant champagnes that are appreciated beyond borders, notably across the Channel, where Ayala has been the official supplier for the British crown. In 2005, the Ayala Champagne House was taken over by the family company Bollinger.

The wine

Ayala’s Brut Majeur comes from the best crus in Champagne and is the perfect expression of the house’s wonderfully delicate style.

Winemaking and ageing

This cuvée is subject to nearly 3 years of ageing on lees. Its dosage is 7g/l.

Blend

Ayala’s Rosé Majeur is made from a blend of Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (40%), of which 6% is red wine, and Pinot Meunier (10%).

Tasting

Colour

The wine is a delicate light pink.

Nose

The generous and expressive nose mixes fragrances of red fruit and vine peach.

Palate

The airy palate seduces with its freshness, fruity notes (redcurrant, raspberry) as well as its fruity, persistent and full-bodied finish.

Food and wine pairings

Ayala’s Rosé Majeur blends harmoniously with a salmon fillet that is half-cooked on one side, lamb chops, or even a red fruit tart.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Based on the 2015 vintage, the NV Rosé Majeur Brut spent two and a half years on the lees before disgorgement. Offering up charming aromas of ripe apples, red berries and crushed mint, it's full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a youthfully ebullient mousse, ripe acids and a moderately intense finish. This rendition is a touch more sun-kissed and open-knit than the best examples, but it's a creditable effort.
