Expert Reviews

"Salmon pink in the glass, this low-dosage rose shows attractive bright red fruits and red perfume, some dried rose petal aromas too. The palate has a direct, flavoursome appeal, placing rich, fine cherry fruit flavour right along the length with a refined, balanced finish. "Rating 94 & 2 Glasses - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2011

"Salmon pink colour, this dry rose shows attractive red fruits, perfume and dried rose petal aromas. Rich, fine cherry fruit flavours run the length of the palate." Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller WINE(01/Dec/2009)

"A dry style with moderate richness permeated by strawberry, watermelon and spice flavors. Precise balance and a mouthwatering finish add to its appeal." Rating 89 - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (01/Nov/2009)

"Salmon pink and billed as a low dosage rose, plenty of bright red fruits and red florals, dried rose petals; romantic and sophisticated. Confident flavoursome palate, fine cherry fruit flavour, it take the rose genre into a refined, balanced palate."Rating - 94 & 4 1/2 Stars - Nick Stock, Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009

"Even though this is very dry, ripe raspberries and red berries are quite sufficient to give it richness, which balances well with the tight, fresh acidity. " Wine Enthusiast (Dec/2008)

"It has flowery apple-blossom aromas with minerally/spicy/savoury background to the sweet fruit on the mid-palate, which balances the hone-dry, zero dosage finish."Rating 95 - James Halliday's Top 100, The Weekend Australian Magazine (09/Nov/2008)

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

AYALA Cuvée Rosé Nature displays a pale salmon-coloured core, enhanced by a beautiful necklace of fine and long-lasting bubbles…

Aroma

On the nose, the bouquet displays the intensity of the Pinot Noir and the appealing red fruit notes from the red wine that is included in the blend.

Palate

The same sensation remains on the palate, with a lovely lingering freshness and delicacy delivered by the very high proportion of Chardonnay.

Food Matching

Cuvée Rosé Nature is perfect served as an aperitif, but it will also be a delight with salmon to balance the fat, with roasted lamb, or with a dessert of red fruits. It is also the “magic wine” to share on a romantic evening…

Winemaking Notes

Cuvée Rosé Nature is a blend of premiers- and grands crus, with an extremely high average rating of 96% on the “échelle des crus” scale: - 53% Chardonnay (Cuis, Vertus), - 39% Pinot Noir (Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Verzy, Rilly la Montagne), and 8% still red wine from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ (Pinot Noir from old vines).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Ayala was founded in 1860 and such was their success they were invited as a foundation member of the "Syndicat des Grandes Marques" in 1882, an organisation restricted to the leading Houses. With fruit from Grand and Premier Crus Ayala has offered consistent style and quality and was purchased by Bollinger in 2005.

Ayala shares the same quality imperiative as Bollinger with wines of a different style. In its December 2006 edition the prestigious and influential French magazine "La Revue du Vin de France" selected Ayala Brut Majeur as a "Grand Vin" and included it (together with Bollinger Special Cuvee) in their Top 5 champagnes that illustrated the different styles of champagnes - Ayala being selected as being both an aperitif as well as for the table.
