Pale gold in colour with a lovely youthful glint, the mousse of AYALA’s Blanc de Blancs is superb as is it’s distinguished necklaces of bubbles. The nose is intense and expressive with notes of ripe citrus, honey, dried fruit and a very subtle touch of toast. The palate is generous and perfectly balanced despite the wine’s relative youth. The even structure of the blend ensures a very pleasant ?nish on the palate. Blanc de Blancs is a light and elegant cuvee which beautifully harmonizes intense character and a delicate youthful touch.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Tightly knit, this is more about the fine, chinalike structure today, but nonetheless offers a pretty note of honeysuckle wafting through the subtle flavors of crunchy pear, blanched almond, smoke and ground ginger. Disgorged July 2012. Drink now through 2028.—A.N.

Wine Advocate, 91, The 2002 Brut Blanc de Blancs flows with the essence of smoke^^ Wine Spectator, 94, Delivers a seductive mélange of graphite

Wine maker notes
Despite the bad weather at the beginning of September, the 2005 harvest finally took place in optimal conditions and was very generous in terms of quantity and quality. The weight and the maturity of the grapes were indeed about average. The particularly beautiful quality of chardonnay is highlighted by our 2005 Blanc de Blancs.

Technical notes
12.0% abv pH:3.09

Food pairing
Very seductive as an aperitif, the Blanc de Blancs is equally divine with coquilles Saint Jacques or a braised turbot with truffles. It even pairs well with a crunchy dessert prepared with aniseed pears. AYALA Blanc de Blancs is a wonderful delight for wine lovers.
