Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Ayala (Bollinger owned), a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. Bright Pale Gold with aromas of stone fruits, citrus scents and biscuit notes. On the palate apple and orange, with raspberry characteristics are present in a well balanced structure. The finish has plenty of toasty nutty biscuit, clean and elegant on the long ending.

Ayala, been owned by Bollinger since 2005 and it was a good move. This is a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. Pale straw gold with aromas of stone fruits, citrus, floral scents and yeastiness. On the palate crisp apple, a touch of orange, and red berry come forth in fine structure. The finish has a good punch of toasty nutty biscuit, clean and elegant on the long ending.

Pale lemon color, big fine bubbles. Medium+ aromas of ripe lemon peel, yellow apple, white peach, blossom, vanilla, bread cover, brioche. High acidity, medium body, medium+ intense of flavor, white peach, yellow apple, brioche. Long finish.
Balanced, elegant yet structured.
Better after some time, beautifully develop in the glass.

(16.5/20) Аромат яблок, айвы и сдобной булки. Высокая, хорошо интегрированная кислотность. Во вкусе яблоко, мёд, белый персик. Элегантное, прекрасно сбалансированное шампанское.
