Ayala Champagne, Rosé Majeur

Rosé Majeur embodies the refinement of Ayala champagnes. Chardonnay, the emblematic grape variety of the House, for the most part, brings freshness and finesse to this blended rosé, composed of 24 exceptional crus. When it comes to blending and vinification, nothing is left to chance. The Pinots Noirs, originating from the best crus on the Montagne de Reims, are handled here with emphasis on fruit rather than structure.

Rosé Majeur is primarily a sweet treat, with a subtle dosage. The delicate notes arise from the red wine, added to the blend in a small amount. This still wine is elaborated exclusively from the Pinot Noir of Aÿ, a Grand cru characterised by the legendary generosity of its fruit. The low dosage, a trademark of the House, here underlines the beautiful freshness and elegance of a great rosé blend.

Base year: 2019, 17% Reserve wines from the years 2018, 2017, 2016. 51 % Chardonnay, 39 % Pinot Noir, 10 % Meunier, Dosage 6 g/L

A pale pink and delicate. Charming, generous and open, it reveals notes of red fruits and vine peach. Airy and expressive, a beautiful freshness, notes of redcurrants and raspberries, a finish built on the persistence of fruit, voluptuous and melting.

Ideally suited to accompany a meal, Rosé Majeur will perfectly complement a salmon fillet lightly cooked on one side, pink lamb chops or even a red fruit tart.
