Ayala Brut Nature NV
Bright gold, with a silver hue. Direct but fine. Marked by precision and notes of citrus fruit with a saline component. Both complex and clean. Remains full of purity and tension. Delivers dry, mineral notes, along with flavours of grapefruit and white fruits.

Champagne AYALA has always been a small, independent and family-run business. After the Second World War the House went through a rather quiet period as its leaders occupied important positions in Champagne trade associations. In 2005 the Bollinger family bought this fine estate, with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. This was the start of a resurgence for Champagne AYALA, with complete restoration of winemaking facilities and the arrival of new staff. The House employs today about 15 people, keeping the family spirit of its origins.
