GRAPES: 2/3 Chardonnay and 1/3 Pinot Noir.
N°7 is the second opus in the “COLLECTION AYALA”. This ephemeral cuvée is a blend of 7 Grands Crus from the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, all from the 2007 vintage year. Thanks to its long ageing in the cellars, on lees, and its low dosage, this noble champagne is a superb example of AYALA’s savoir-faire.
COLOUR: Characterised by a delicate effervescence and light golden hue suggestive of freshness and elegance.
NOSE: The delicate yet powerful nose immerses us in a rich and summery world of plump stewed fruit , ripe mirabelle plums and apricots, honey and a hint of eucalyptus.
PALATE: Incredibly soft and structured by an elegant effervescence and acidity. The smooth, rich and creamy texture gives way to saline and menthol notes which give the impression of moving from fruit to radiance. The finish is powerful and long-lingering.
FOOD PAIRINGS: The N°7 pairs perfectly with dense yet delicately textured foods such as grilled lobster in salted butter served with a saffron risotto, a veal fillet medallion in a creamy sauce or simply an 18-month matured Comte.
