Champagne Ayala Perle d’Ayala 2005 (96 La Pan)
“This cuvee, produced only in top years, and in limited quantities, marks the year the venerable, family-run Ayala was bought by Bollinger. Released after almost nine years on the lees, it is “very creamy, dense and complex” says Charles Curtis MW.”
A treasure in the portfolio, Perle d'Ayala is produced only in exceptional years, according to practices that have remained faithful to the Champagne tradition. Composed of a majority of Chardonnay, this wine captures the essence of the Champagne terroir, in the purest respect of the style of the House.
Ayala is one of the most exciting stories in Champagne today, almost the definition of a boutique Champagne producer. Independently owned, a small, young and dynamic team handles every step of production from grape reception to labeling in their jewel of a facility with incredible precision, crafting Chardonnay-focused wines that deliver immense pleasure, freshness, and elegance.
