Ayala, Blanc de Blancs, Brut 2008

Grape(s)         :  Chardonnay

Description    :

"A racy edition courtesy of the 2008 vintage, this has plenty of lemon curd mingled with super-pure grapefruit notes. The palate has chalky, pastry-like savory elements that herald an acid-driven palate structure, and this delivers plenty of ripe-lemon-citrus flavor; it's really focused and fresh. Drinks well now, but will deliver nicely over the next 5+ years." - (October 8, 2016) JS 93

"Rich and ripe flavors of glazed apricot and spiced plum are layered with pastry dough, graphite and spice notes in this balanced version, with a lively bead. Accessible, presenting juicy acidity through to the clean-cut finish. Disgorged April 2015. Drink now through 2024. 80 cases imported." -WS'92
