Forbes included Champagne Ayala Brut Majeur in a story highlighting the best wines to pair with oysters for Valentine’s Day. Writer Jeanette Hurt says, “this well-balanced and vibrant non-vintage brut hails from a historic champagne house, and combined with oysters, they make a dynamic duo.”
Continuing, she adds, “this Chardonnay forward and drier style of champagne enhances the briny, creamy and minerality of oysters, particularly West Coast style oysters, which are smaller and more delicate that East Coast. Brut Majeur NV particularly pairs well with Kumamoto and Hama Hama oysters.” Read the full story HERE
Brut Majeur is the epitome of a non-vintage brut from a great, historic House and is the finest ambassador for the House’s freshness and elegance. A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, coupled with extended aging in Ayala’s cellars and a low dosage, make this wine suitable for any occasion.
Ayala is one of the most exciting stories in Champagne today, almost the definition of a boutique Champagne producer. Independently owned, a small, young and dynamic team handles every step of production from grape reception to labeling in their jewel of a facility with incredible precision, crafting Chardonnay-focused wines that deliver immense pleasure, freshness, and elegance.
