AYALA 02 BRUT PERLE D'AYALA

STEVEN TANZER 93 POINTS-"...(all grand cru; 80% Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cramant and Chouilly and 20% Pinot Noir from Ay): Vivid yellow. Nectarine, orange, honey and jasmine on the highly perfumed nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, with impressive depth and vivacity to its juicy citrus and pit fruit flavors. Picks up an intense, chalky quality on the finish, which clings with serious tenacity and resonating spiciness. This nervy, bracing Champagne would be fantastic with oysters." - Josh Raynolds (Nov/Oct 2011)

WINERY NOTES-"Made out of the 2002 harvest, this Cuvee Perle Nature is a very exclusive blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir... This wine has been aged for over 5 years in our cellars. The real cork used for this long ageing allows the best control of oxydo-reduction and ensures the development of very delicate and complex aromas. It is a very rare practice today in Champagne and the bottle is known for its famous “bague carrée” (square ring)."
