Ayala Le Blanc De Blanc 2016
Produced in limited quantities in exceptional years only, Le Blanc de Blancs highlights all of the elegance and the purity of the great Chardonnays with a blend of only Grands and Premiers Crus from the Côte des Blancs.
Recognizable by its pure and creamy style, Le Blanc de Blancs is a true ode to Chardonnay. This is the emblematic cuvée of the House. The prolonged ageing time in the cellar favors the complexity and balance of an exceptional champagne.
Eye: Bright with white gold glints and a very fine bubble.
Nose: Luscious with aromas of ripe lemon, citron and jasmine accompanied by subtle notes of acacia honey and Timut pepper.
Palate: Lively and well-balanced start, which shows a lovely density. Flavours of passion fruit, citrus, spices and mirabelle plum tart. Long, lingering finish with a chalky minerality.
The ultimate epicurean aperitif, Le Blanc de Blancs 2016 also pairs marvellously with Turbot with beurre blanc, turkey with endives and lime, Crottin de Chavignol goat's cheese or an exotic fruit Pavlova.
