Critical Acclaim

WE90 Wine Enthusiast 12/1/2018

"The nonvintage cuvée from this producer, this bottling exemplifies the drier style that’s the firm’s hallmark. It is elegant, a fruity wine that is also crisply textured. Drink now." (90 pts.)

WS90 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2013

"Luscious ripeness lends this wine a quince-like flavor, feeling round and generous against the chalky briskness of Champagne. For all its fruitiness, this is dry, firm and grounded, a clean aperitif or a first-course wine for a rabbit terrine." (90 pts.)

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Dec 2010

"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." (88 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Nov 15, 2018

"This balanced Champagne offers a creamy bead and a fresh mix of ground white pepper, ginger, Red Delicious apple, biscuit and citrus peel flavors. Disgorged July 2017. Drink now. 3,500 cases imported." (89 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Nov 2015

"Ayala’s NV Brut Majeur is a solid entry-level wine. Dried pear, hazelnut, spice and licorice notes open up in a pretty, toasted NV Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. The Pinot comes through loud and clear in the wine’s breadth and overall texture. Disgorged: February 2015." (90 pts.)

Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
