Wine writers Tom Stevenson, Michael Edwards, and Andrew Jefford tasted a prestigious line-up of Vintage  Champagne Blanc de Blancs in a panel tasting for the World of Fine Wine (September 1, 2014 edition). The results for Ayala are striking – their Blanc de Blancs 2007 placed 3rd, ahead of Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 and Salon 2002!

In his introduction, Tom Stevenson notes:

“Ayala has always been one of Champagne’s best-value brands, and over the past eight or nine years it has also been one of its fastest improving.  The 2007 Blanc de Blancs must rank as one of its finest Champagnes to date.”

Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2007 was included in both Andrew Jefford and Tom Stevenson’s Top Wines of the tasting.
