The Unique Essence of Ayala Wines

Ayala Wines is an extraordinary destination situated at the crossroads of the esteemed Grands Crus of Champagne. It stands tall, built with vertical lines, embodying the savoir-faire and excellence of Champagne. Every aspect of the winemaking process takes place on-site, meticulously following the rules of the craft. This bespoke approach allows Ayala Wines to achieve the perfect balance, unveiling the purest expression of Chardonnay in a meticulously crafted three-act process.

A Palette of Excellence

Thanks to their exceptional craftsmanship, Ayala Wines works with a diverse palette of crus to achieve the ideal equilibrium. With finesse and subtlety, they artfully showcase the exceptional terroir surrounding Chardonnay, the emblematic grape variety of the House. Ayala Wines constantly pursues the finest raw materials, boasting a selection of 70 crus, 50 of which are Chardonnay. These crus are sourced from the most esteemed terroirs of Champagne. This distinctive diversity contributes complexity and remarkable aromatic freshness to their blends.

A Vineyard Rooted in Excellence

The House of Ayala maintains its own vineyards, spanning 20 hectares, nestled in prime locations. The Montagne de Reims hosts Aÿ Grand Cru and Dizy, while the Côte des Blancs embraces Chouilly and Oger, both classified as Grands Crus. Additionally, Champvoisy and Passy-Grigny in the Vallée de la Marne complete their vineyard holdings. To honour the essence of the raw material, Ayala Wines is transitioning its vineyards to organic viticulture, holding HEV and VDC certifications. The House cultivates trusted relationships with winegrowers, supporting their environmental endeavours.

A Precise Vinification Process

Ayala Wines boasts 120 individual stainless-steel vats ranging from 5 to 200 hL. These cutting-edge tools enable an incredibly precise vinification method, allowing each cru to rest and develop its unique characteristics in isolation before blending. This meticulous approach is the key to crafting blends of exceptional finesse.

The Essence of Purity

Absent of artifice, Ayala Wines honours the essence of each grape, allowing them to naturally mature and reveal their true organoleptic quality. To preserve this stylistic purity, the House maintains a library of reserve wines stored in small vats. These reserve wines, reminiscent of previous cuvées, work in harmony with the wines of the year, imparting a silky texture on the palate and contributing to the overall balance of their champagnes.

A Symphony of Grapes

At the heart of Ayala's blends, the iconic Chardonnay holds a central position. With its refreshing character and pure line, it epitomizes the essence of Ayala's style. Pinot Noir and Meunier complement the Chardonnay, elevating its character to new heights.

Absolute Commitment to Purity

The unmistakable hallmark of Ayala Wines lies in their minimalist dosage. They were pioneers in the region, embracing low dosage as a signature style. The cuvée Brut Nature, without added dosage, serves as a testament to their unwavering dedication to this principle.

Timeless Aging for Complexity

Ayala Wines embraces an extended aging process on lees, allowing for the development of beautiful aromatic complexity. They take the liberty to age their wines for as long as deemed necessary, ranging from 3 to 12 years, or even longer. This patient approach results in champagnes of unparalleled character and depth.
