To show the exceptional quality of the Ayala Brut Majeur, Ayala have created this Brut Majeur Zero: it is exactly the same blend without any dosage (added sugar); the pure wine. Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse. The wine is rich and aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is dry and shows great finesse and complexity. Pinot Noir gives the wine richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Cotes des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness. Brut Majeur Zero can be enjoyed after dinner. For the ladies it is the perfect diet champagne!
Production: The origin of the cru's gives a good idea of the quality of the wine. The Pinot Noir is sourced from Aÿ, Mareuil sur Aÿ , Louvois, Bouzy, Tours sur Marne, Verzy and Rilly. The Chardonnay is sourced from Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cuis and Vertus. And the Pinot Meunier is sourced from Venteuil, Cerseuil, St Martin d'Ablois and Chavot. These villages are ranked at the very high level of 93% on the ‘échelle des crus' scale. After second fermentation Rich Majeur spends more than 2 years on its lees in the cellars, and rests for 4 months after disgorgement and prior to shipment. Ayala is owned by the Bollinger Champagne House.
