Ayala Cuvée Rosé Nature

Cuvee: Brut Nature, Rosé
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
Ayala Cuvée Rosé Nature is made with a majority of Chardonnay. The delicate pink colour is obtained by addition of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from Champagne. This wine has absolutely no sugar dosage.

The blend
53% Chardonnay (Cuis, Vertus), 39% Pinot Noir (Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Verzy, Rilly la Montagne), and 8% still red wine from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ (Pinot Noir from old vines). Dosage: 0g/l. Residual sugar: 1.5 g/l.

Tasting notes
A pale salmon-coloured core, enhanced by a necklace of fine and long-lasting bubbles.

The bouquet displays the intensity of the Pinot Noir and the appealing red fruit notes from the red wine that is included in the blend.

The same sensation remains on the palate, with a lovely lingering freshness and delicacy delivered by the very high proportion of Chardonnay.

Food pairing
Perfect as an aperitif, it will also be a delight with salmon to balance the fat; with roasted lamb; or with a dessert of red fruits.
