Ayala’s Blanc de Blancs is 100% Chardonnay, produced in small quantities in exceptional years only and fully expresses the superb caliber of great Chardonnay from the best crus of the Côte des Blancs. It is truly a unique vintage offering.
The 2012 vintage is sourced from 3 Grand Cru villages on the Cote des Blancs: Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly and Cramant. After 6 years of aging in Ayala’s cellars, remarkable minerality and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can accompany a variety of flavorful dishes, or stand on its own.
Subtle and inviting, this wine is focused and features delicate aromas of white flowers, citrus, clear honey and frangipane. Offering both balance and volume, the flavors on the palate show great coherence with the aromas, marked by notes of lemon zest and white flowers. Its silky texture gives it an ethereal quality that lingers on the fine mineral finish.
