In the NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition readers will find a big, powerful wine bursting with character and personality. The intensity and pure depth of Ay come through in this deep, expressive Champagne. An intensely saline, mineral-infused finish adds the last touch of complexity. The NV Grand Cru Tradition is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay bottled with 6 grams of dosage. This release is based on the 2008 vintage, with the addition of 30% reserve wines from 2007 and 2006. - Antonio Galloni

"Juicy notes of creamed apple and plum puree are lightly spiced, with ground ginger, anise and clove accents. Hints of roasted almond, pastry and crystallized honey add richness and ride the fine, creamy mousse to a lightly chalky finish." - Alison Napjus

"The NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is such a classic Ay Champagne. Broad and creamy, the Tradition offers up tons of Pinot Noir breadth balanced by a good bit of energy from the Chardonnay in the blend. Plum, ginger, spice, dried flowers and almond paste all meld together effortlessly. Full malolactic fermentation amplifies the flavors and textures, but there is no oak here. All the elements are so well balanced. Best of all, Gatinois offers superb quality
for the money. The blend is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, 70% 2019 and 30% reserve wines from 2018 and 2017. Dosage is 7 grams per liter." - Antonio Galloni
