Ayala, Brut Nature Zero Dosage, Year Unspecified

Ayala Brut Nature Zero Dosage, a sparkling wine hailing from the heart of the Champagne region in France, holds the distinction of being a product of Champagne Ayala. Founded in 1860, this house is renowned for crafting wines that are both fresh and elegant.

This particular Champagne carries the label Brut Nature or Zero Dosage, indicating that no additional sugar has been introduced following the second in-bottle fermentation. This absence of extra sweetness allows the genuine qualities of the grapes and the terroir to be fully appreciated.

The Brut Nature Zero Dosage is composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. While the precise blend fluctuates annually, Ayala typically incorporates a larger quantity of Chardonnay in their Champagnes. This practice contributes to the wines' signature freshness and elegance.

The wine's visual presentation is a delicate gold hue, accentuated by a consistent flow of tiny bubbles. Its aroma is a complex fusion of citrus fruits, green apple, and white flowers, with a subtle hint of brioche or toast that arises from prolonged lees aging. The palate experience is crisp, clean, and well-structured, boasting a perfect equilibrium of fruit, acidity, and a unique minerality. The finish is both lengthy and refreshing.

The high acidity and absence of added sugar make this Champagne a versatile choice for pairing with food. It complements seafood, oysters, sushi, sea urchins, and other light fish dishes particularly well.
