The Ayala house was founded in 1860 in the commune of Aÿ by Edmond de Ayala, a great wine lover. His brother, Fernand, settled in London where he became a close friend of the Prince of Wales for whom the 1865 vintage was made with a very low sugar dosage. The Ayala house thus became an official supplier to the English crown. This vintage marks the beginning of a range of Nature champagne, without added sugar. The Ayala style today rests on five pillars: the pure expression of Chardonnay, the unique diversity of crus, tailor-made blending, reserve wines and low dosage.

The prestige cuvée of the Ayala house, La Perle d’Ayala, is a champagne aged under cork, pure, straight and slightly silky. It expresses the personality of the house: straight, slender, without any heaviness. The Ayala house also offers wines of a superb quality/price ratio with notably the cuvée Brut Majeur, a fruity, well-dosed champagne, without acidity, but with a slight minerality; or the cuvée Brut Nature, a nervous, chiseled, very elegant champagne, with a fruity touch, to which no sweet liqueur has been added.

Ayala Champagnes: A Unique Style

The Ayala Style is distinguished by its purity and elegance, a characteristic that is particularly expressed through the house's emblematic grape variety, Chardonnay. Founded in 1860 by Edmond de Ayala, the house has always emphasized the creation of low-dosage wines, which allows the primary aromas of the grapes to fully express themselves.

The Ayala Vineyard

Located in the heart of the Grands Crus of Champagne in Aÿ, the Ayala Vineyard benefits from an exceptional diversity of crus. The house sources its grapes from the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne, and other prestigious terroirs, ensuring the richness and complexity of its cuvées.

Winemaking at Ayala

Ayala uses state-of-the-art winemaking techniques, including micro-vinification in individual stainless steel vats, which preserves the integrity and personality of each cru. The wines are then blended with great precision, a process that relies on the artisanal know-how passed down from generation to generation.

The Cellar Master

The current cellar master of Ayala, Julien Gout, is a true artisan of wine. His expertise and passion for Chardonnay are evident in every bottle produced by the house. Under his direction, Ayala continues to produce champagnes that reflect the purity and elegance of the house.

The Owning Family

Ayala belongs to the Bollinger family, a well-known name in the world of champagne. This association brings stability and a long-term vision to the house, while respecting the heritage and values of Edmond de Ayala.
