Disgorged in November 2018, Ayala's 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs offers up an elegant bouquet of lemon oil, English walnuts, crisp yellow apples, linden blossom and hints of praline to come with bottle age. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with racy acids, a delicate mousse and a fine-boned, elegant profile. Concluding with a long and nicely defined finish, this vibrant and intense wine is one of the finest wines Ayala has released for some time. (WK)
Made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from the Grand Cru villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly, and Cramant, this 2013 has an energetic nose expressing elegant notes of citrus and chamomile, with a minty overtone. The crystalline palate is driven by limestone-based acidity. (YC)
The 2013 Le Blanc de Blancs from Ayala is 100% Chardonnay sourced from three Grand Cru villages and 2 Premier Cru villages, all on the Côtes des Blancs. It offers a classic Blanc de Blancs nose of crushed citrus and lemon curd as well as notes of white flowers, toasted almonds, and freshly baked bread. Rich, medium-bodied, and beautifully textured on the palate, it shows the cooler, pure, focused style of the vintage yet has terrific depth and length. Count me impressed.
A dense and flavorful blanc de blancs with lots of cooked-apple and sweet pie-crust character. Full body. Rich and almost decadent. Heavier than some, but turns fresh at the end.
