Blanc de Blancs A/18 Bottle (0.75L) | Naked Bottle

Maison Ayala reveals A/18, signature purity. Ayala Blanc de Blancs A/18 is a unique interpretation of the House’s signature Blanc de Blancs. This new blend of 100% Grands Crus and Premiers Crus Chardonnays expresses the purity of the chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims around the singularity of the 2018 harvest. Entirely Vintage, this first edition of A/18 will be followed by new interpretations that will continue to explore the various Terroirs of Chardonnays, selected by Champagne Ayala at each harvest, allowing the cuvée to reinvent itself with each new edition.

    Chardonnay is the majority grape variety in all our cuvées, and the hallmark of our pure, balanced style. It is the very essence of Champagne Ayala’s ambitious project to embody the excellence and expertise of this white grape variety in Champagne. The House has made its Blanc de Blancs its emblematic cuvée, and today reveals A/18, a unique interpretation of this cuvée.

    Recommended glass shape: a tulip-shaped, spherical glass with a narrower opening to enhance taste and aroma.

    The 2028 harvest: a rainy winter and mild spring, and a dry, sunny summer herald optimal conditions for an early harvest. The latter is generous and in a state of near-perfect health, particularly for the Chardonnays. The Grands Terroirs have come into their own, thanks to the freshness of Champagne’s chalky subsoils.
    To the eye

    A luminous robe with fine, dynamic bubbles.

    On the nose

    The nose reveals elegant aromas of pear, grapefruit and jasmine, accompanied by hints of honey.

    In the mouth

    The clean attack is followed by notes of blood orange and pastry. A very lively wine, with fine bitters and the chalky minerality characteristic of this emblematic Ayala cuvée.

    Food & champagne pairings

    This champagne is a perfect match for refined cuisine, revealing the raw material without artifice, to echo the great purity of the wine. Its liveliness makes it a perfect aperitif champagne, and will go particularly well with starters or fish dishes such as scallop carpaccio, sea bass tartar with citrus fruit or oysters.

    Ideal operating temperature

    10 °C

    Potential of keeping

    Like all wines, champagne can be kept for varying lengths of time, depending on the type. Under optimal storage conditions, champagne can be kept for 1 to 2 years for Brut cuvées, and up to 4/5 years or even longer for vintage and prestige champagnes. Whatever happens, rest assured that you'll never be able to open your champagne too early, as the Champagne Houses only release their cuvées when they have reached perfect ripeness and are ready for immediate consumption.
