Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne Ayala is one of the longest-established champagne Houses; Independent and family-owned it has been based in Aÿ, at the heart of the great champagne vineyards, since it was founded over 150 years ago. After the Second World War the House went through a rather quiet period as its leaders occupied important positions in Champagne trade associations. In 2005 the Bollinger family bought this fine estate, with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. This was the start of a resurgence for Champagne Ayala, with complete restoration of winemaking facilities and the arrival of new staff. The House employs today about 15 people, keeping the family spirit of its origins.

N°7 is the second edition in the " Ayala Collection," unique champagnes produced in small quantities and only released when they reach their peak. This cuvée is a blend of 7 outstanding Grands Crus from the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, all from the 2007 vintage. With exceptional aromatic complexity and a silky texture, long ageing in the cellars and a low dosage.

Essi Avellan MW
“The newest member of Ayala’s collection of one-off prestige cuvées. Rich, evolving yeast-complexed nose that brings to the fore Chardonnay’s lemony and buttery tones. Behind, there is ripe apple and cotton candy sweetness. Comprised of fruit from 7 grands crus, it is intense and creamy. The maturity and complexity of the nose marry well with the freshness and vigour of the palate. Long, seductively textured and clean finish. ”

“A new cuvée for Ayala that was disgorged in July 2019, the 2007 Brut No. 7 derives from fruit sourced in seven grands crus—Chouilly, Oger, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Aÿ and Verzy—and saw tirage under cork. Offering up aromas of lemon oil, dried white flowers, walnuts and fresh bread, it's full-bodied, vinous and incisive, with a pillowy mousse, racy acids and a long, mineral finish.”
