NV Rosé Champagne Ayala, Rosé Majeur, Ay

Tasting Notes

Made predominantly with Chardonnnay and an addition of a small proportion of Pinot Noir, from the best Crus of Montagne de Reims, Rosé Majeur offers finesse and elegance. Low dosage allows the House style to be expressed with the wine spending an average of 3 years ageing on its lees and resting for four to six months after disgorgement.

A delicate cherry hue with a hint of copper. The mousse is fine and persistent. The nose displays aromas of red fruits (strawberries, raspberries and morello cherries) together with nuances of spice. On the palate, the wine is light, fresh and well balanced. It has a rich, lasting finish with flavours of red gooseberry and raspberry lingering. Feminine and generous.

50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir (Including 6% of still red wine), 10% Pinot Meunier

Vineyard Information

Established in 1860 in Aÿ, and surrounded by the area's most prestigious vineyards, the core range of cuvées epitomises the dry and elegant House style.

Ayala were pioneers in introducing a drier style of wine during the second half of the 19th century. Cellar master Caroline Latrive carefully ensures the House style is maintained, crafting wines renowned for their precision, delicacy and quality.
