Passed down through the family

Since 1876



Ay’s unique terroir and even more exceptional artisanal winemaking skills showcase the sensory richness of the Pinot Noir grape in our champagnes.

We deliberately favour understatement and patience in a quest for quality and excellence.

Our only rule is that we must understand the wines to showcase them in both our blended champagnes and single-parcel cuvées.
We use oak casks in which malolactic fermentation is not a foregone conclusion. We let the wines decide for themselves.

During ageing, the fine lees in the bottle transform, adding richness to our developing champagnes.
After disgorgement, we add a dosage of natural liqueur to allow full expression of the fruit, potency and elegance in our cuvées.
