The Champagne has a delicate colour of silk and a fine mousse with persistence and generosity.

This wine reveals a world of tenderness and softness.

Sensual and passionate, feminine, full bodied, wild strawberries, evolved cassis and liquorice.

The Rosé has been made with the help of an ay Rouge, Appellation Chateaux Champenois which was the first red wine ever made in the region and that gives its authentic link to the history of Champagne. Fermented and aged in stainless steel vats for 6 months, aged in oak for 6 months followed by 2 years of bottle ageing.

For over 10 centuries, the wines of Ay have been classed within the first and most nobles still wines in the world. When, at the end of the 17th century, circumstances led to the discovery of sparkling wines, Ay, due to the unique southern exposure and its chalky hills, established the renown of this new product. It was, of course, called vin d'Ay as the Champagne appellation appeared in 1887.

Today, out of 323 crus of the Champagne region, only 17 are classified as 'Grands Crus 100%'. Ay is one of them.

I went looking for this particular champagne after tasting a glass at Gordon Ramsay at Claridges and absolutely loving it. It is much heavier than a normal rose tastes and it has such an intense flavour, it's gorgeous!
