Ayala's 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 of ageing in the cellars, remarkable minerality and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can accompany a variety of flavoursome dishes including poultry and fish, or be served on its own to celebrate a special occasion. Bright, light yellow colour with very fine and abundant bubbles. Delicate on the nose but already very expressive, the nose features a great aromatic freshness, with notes of lemon, white fruits, yellow plums and frangipane. 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 flowers, culminating in a long finish, tightly wound on a pure line of the chalky minerality that Côte des Blancs is famous for. A great epicurian apéritif on its own, but will also pair beautifully with seared sea scallops with preserved Meyer lemon or with a turbot fillet with a seaweed-infused beurre blanc sauce.
