Ayala Blanc de Blancs
Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: Light gold, bright, fine, with abundant bubbles. Vigourous, it is both open and intense, showing generosity with delicate and refined notes of hawthorn, mirabelle plum, white peach, almond and exotic fruits. The attack is precise, leading to an ample palate, with remarkable volume and a great depth. The white fruit and citrus notes are clean and focused, with a racy, chalky minerality. The finish is fine and delicate and offers rare length and aromatic concentration.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Pairing: The purity of its aromatic character makes Blanc de Blancs 2008 the perfect epicurean aperitif, but it can also pair well with a variety of white fish, like turbot or john dory. Ideal with a wild sea bass with lemon butter, a pink peppercorn seasoned sea scallop carpaccio or lobster in a vanilla sauce.
