Number 77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Pale gold in color with a fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the best grand and premier crus bring vinosity and delicacy together in a very harmoniously balanced blend. The complement of Pinot Meunier adds a charming touch of fruitiness and liveliness.

Delicious as an aperitif, Ayala Brut Majeur is also the perfect wine to serve throughout a meal. It will pair perfectly with seafood, beef carpaccio, as well as with sushi and Asian cuisine.

92 Points James Suckling: Very clean and bright with transparency of sliced lemon, pear and chalk. Medium to full body with a very creamy texture and a bright, vivid finish. Comes off dry. Three years on the lees. 55% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier. A blend of 2016-2019. 6 g/l dosage.

90 Points Jeb Dunnuck: The NV Champagne Majeur Brut is inviting, with ripe aromas of lemon balm, pear, and fresh baked bread. The mousse fills the palate and cleans up with pithy orange, parmesan, and dusty chalk. I like this for its lightly savory touch and a bit more concentration. Best after 2022.
