Wine type: champagne - Brut Nature Ayala
Vintage and alcohol content: 12°
Region: Aÿ, Champagne - France.
Grape/blend: 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier.
Type soil: the soil is poor and rocky, the temperature is ideal in summer (partly due to the micro-climate created by the local wind, the Ora del Garda): vines here still co-exist alongside olive groves.The valley is more open here and the excellent sun exposure allows the grapes to ripen to perfection.
Colour: bright gold, with a silver hue.
Aroma: direct but fine. Marked by precision and notes of citrus fruit with a saline component.
Tasting notes: both complex and clean. Remains full of purity and tension. Delivers dry, mineral notes, along with flavours of grapefruit and white fruits.
Serving suggestions: Brut Nature is the perfect match for oysters, raw fish and shellfish, sea urchin and caviar. It is also ideally suited to Thai cuisine or sushi, maki and sashimi.
