Ayala is looking very good and offers some genuine depth and complexity for this
entry-level blend, driving impressive concentration into a savory and defined style.
There’s a firm, chalky edge to this mineral Champagne, and mouthwatering
flavors of candied lemon peel, green apple, crystallized honey and biscuit. This has
an elegant texture and an overall sense of style.
Now owned by the Bollinger family, Ayala’s Champagnes have seen great improvement
in recent years. This non-vintage Brut is complex, with its dry character given weight
by a hint of toast, almonds and a taut aftertaste.
