06.10.2006: From the beginning of November a rosé champagne from the house of Ayala has been for sale. It is called "Rosé Nature", and the "Nature" covers, that it contains absolutely no sugar after degorgement. This latest member of an increasingly popular, pink family mainly contains grapes from the harvest in 2002. It is mixed of 53 percent of Chardonnay from Cuis-Vertus, Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Verzy and Rilly-la-Montagne and eight percent redwine from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, says La Journée Vinicole. The house of Ayala is owned by another famous inhabitant of Aÿ, Bollinger.

Bollinger is not pleased. Bottles of Bolly has been put on sale in the sales of wine, that takes place in some French supermarket chains every autumn for a price of 27 euro. Similar bottles normally sell for more than double. The marketing director of Bollinger, Steven Leroux, says to Decanter.com, that the company wants further details about the sale, and that Bollinger considers a court case. According to the top boss, Ghislain de Montgolfier, an offer of this kind is bad for the image of Bollinger.
