Unfurling in the glass with notes of wheat toast, honeyed peaches, rock salt, dried flowers and lily pollen, the 2006 Cuvée Perle d'Ayala Millesime Brut is showing well and numbers among the more youthful, precise wines produced in this warm vintage. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and precise, with a broad attack, a beautifully refined mousse, zesty acids and a long, saline finish. This spent eight years on cork before disgorgement and saw six grams per liter dosage. 15,000 bottles were produced.

95 pts Wine Enthusiast

After 12 years aging on the lees, this wine is at its peak. Its maturity is now showing beautifully, bringing out toastiness, yeast and a taut texture. The wine's richness is now at its best and it is ready to drink.

93 pts James Suckling

“A Chardonnay dominant cuvee (80 percent) that has rested on the lees for more than eight years.\ It delivers attractive, nutty complexity with an array of peach, lemon and lime aromas. The palate has attractive, pastry-like flavors with lime curd and a fleshy, smooth finish.”
