The NV Brut Rosé Majeur is also outstanding and offers a slightly exotic style in its floral, spicy, raspberry-scented aromas. This medium-bodied Champagne has sharp acidity, solid balance, and a clean, lengthy finish. Give bottles a year. The blend is 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, and the balance Pinot Meunier, all of which spent three years on lees.
A lovely fresh pinot noir, this is focused on the herbal, spicy imprint of the soil. Its red berry scents and pink peppercorn spice frame the earthiness, while nervous acidity brightens the flavors and carries them through a long finish. Serve it with thinly sliced magret de canard, seared rare.
Bright orange-pink. Fresh strawberry and tangerine on the lively floral nose and in the mouth. Spicy and incisive, with sappy red fruit and rose pastille flavors underscored by juicy acidity and a subtle chalky nuance. A mineral element adds bite to the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity and repeating floral character. Six percent of the Pinot Noir component in this blend is in the form of still Pinot Noir from vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. (JR)
The new release of Ayala “Rosé Majeur” non-vintage Brut is comprised of a blend of fifty percent chardonnay, forty percent pinot noir and ten percent pinot meunier, with six percent of the pinot noir being still red wine. The wine spent three years aging sur latte, so this is base year 2012 and it was finished with a dosage of seven grams per liter. The beautiful ruby salmon color is followed by a classy bouquet of blood orange, a touch of rhubarb, beautiful spice tones, chalky minerality, rye bread and a gentle topnote of lavender. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a good core, brisk acids, pinpoint bubbles and good, solid length and grip on the youthful finish. Like the previous iteration I reviewed in December, this wine is already approachable, but will be even better with a bit of bottle age. Good juice. (Drink between 2017-2030)
Delicate flavors of plum, slivered almond, white raspberry and bread dough mix in this fresh rosé, with a lively bead. The smoky undertow gains momentum on the finish. (AN)
The NV Brut Rosé Majeur is delicate and understated, with pretty red berry and floral notes that grace its mid-weight frame. The dosage is perhaps a bit high, but that is a relatively small critique given how much there is to like. Disgorged: March 2017. (AG)
