Colour: Light gold, with abundant and fine bubbles. Nose: Open and expressive. Delicate, unveiling notes of citrus, flowers and white fruits. Palate: Balanced, combining freshness and vinosity. Precise, fruity and characterised by a long finish. Food Pairings: Perfect for an apéritif, Brut Majeur can also pair harmoniously with every course of a meal: white fish, shellfish, poultry or a cheese platter.

A strong offering at the basic level from Ayala. Pinot noir leads the blend in fresh and vibrant style. The palate has plenty of wild cherry, peach, nectarine and grapefruit flavor. Neat and crisp finish. Drink now..October/2017

Part of the Bollinger group, this nonvintage cuvee is sophisticated, with ripe fruit, acidity and tangy orange-zest flavors all in balance. A final fresh twist gives a great lift..Roger Voss, December/2019

The NV Brut Majeur comes from an estate just beside Bollinger and is a 40/40 split of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with the balance Pinot Meunier. Aged 30 months on lees with 7 grams of dosage, it has a crisp, focused, even chiseled style to go with lovely notes of citrus, lemon curd, and white flowers. Drink this vibrant beauty over the coming 5-6 years..March/2018

Smoke and forest floor notes lead the way here, with the chalky texture carrying subtle flavors of grilled nut, lemon meringue and dried currant. Balanced, offering smoke details on the fresh finish. Disgorged September 2014. Drink now.

The NV Brut Majeur shows lovely balance in an approachable, up-front style well-suited to near-term drinking. Clean, mineral notes add a sense of proportion on the fresh, vibrant finish. The blend is 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, 80% of which is from the 2004 vintage, while the rest of the wine is composed of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reserve wines. Disgorged January, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.
