Ayala "Majeur" Brut Champagne

SKU #1032328 91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The current release of Ayala Brut Majeur was disgorged in May of 2021. It offers up a lovely bouquet of apple, fresh-baked bread, a touch of hazelnut, a refined base of soil and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, snappy and full, with a fine core of fruit, lovely mineral undertow, elegant mousse and a long, complex and vibrant finish. As this is a non-malo bottling, the wine has a fine spine of acidity to carry it nicely for many years to come. Good juice. Inner quote mark (7/2022)

Outer quote mark Fresh and creamy Brut with lemon pith, apples, almonds, oats and hints of honey. Medium bubbles with a biscuity palate and a linear, focused finish. Chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. Disgorged July 2021. Inner quote mark (7/2022)


Outer quote mark Ripe and exuberantly fresh aromas are comprised by notes of poached apple and pear with dollops of yeast and petrol. There is good verve to the citrusy and relatively rich medium weight flavors that possess good punch thanks to the firm supporting effervescence while, somewhat curiously, the relatively dry finish evidences a touch of warmth. Inner quote mark (1/2022)

K&L Notes

After a long absence in the U.S., Ayala Champagnes have returned. The Brut Majeur is a low-dosage wine that balances the fullness and intensity of Pinot Noir with Chardonnay's finesse and Pinot Meunier's aromatics and fresh fruit. Scrumptious!
