Champagne Ayala

Winemaker Champagne

Founded by Edmond de Ayala in 1860, Champagne AYALA is one of the oldest Champagne Houses, established in Aÿ, in the heart of the Grands Crus, since its founding more than 150 years ago. Independent and family, it represents today the archetype of the great House, producing wines of high flight, appreciated by the world for their freshness and elegance.

Champagne AYALA has always belonged to independent family structures and on a human scale. After the Second World War, the House experienced a calm period of its history, its leaders then occupying important roles within the interprofession champenoise. In 2005, the Bollinger family bought the beautiful property on hearing good revival : a period of renewal began for Champagne AYALA, with a complete overhaul of production tools and the arrival of new teams. Today, the House employs around fifteen people, retaining the family spirit of its origins.
All stages of the wine making process are conducted permanently : from winemaking to bottle shipping, including aging, stirring, disgorging, dressing and packaging. The 2 kilometers of cellars shelter nearly 2.5 million bottles, which age slowly in the secular vaults, dug out of the chalky hillsides of Aÿ.
Champagne AYALA produces wines appreciated for their precision, delicacy, airiness and style based on freshness and elegance. Balanced joints with a good share of Chardonnay, vinification conducted only in small stainless steel vats and low dosages : all of which define the unique personality of the emblematic cuvées of the House.

Le Grand Restaurant

Restaurant Gastronomical Les Grandes Tables du Monde

Lovers of French gastronomy, Chef Piège accompanies the latter towards its future by developing a contemporary approach to the cuisine and the restaurant.
It could be obvious, but Jean-François Piège cooks. Far from disguising the ingredient, the Chef transforms and reveals what the producer offers him. A respect for the act of cooking that comes naturally, and this is one of his other signatures, a flawless requirement in the selection of products. From a passion for cooking too. In any case, there are incredible transmutation potentials constantly explored by Jean-François Piège, for whom cooking means controlling the flame or the temperature.

A warm approach that we find in this imperious desire to please, to welcome, to be hospitable in every way. This generosity is embodied in the gourmet aspect of Chef Piège’s cuisine, in these subtleties – the cooking of celery root on wild sweet clover or the delicate caramelization of a rib of beef – which make a unique bite. A sum of details, actions and personal touches that lead to the unique cuisine of Jean-François Piège and some of his iconic dishes among which, the sweet-egg white-eating, the Mijotés Modernes (these ingredients cooked on other ingredients) or puffed pizza dough.
Opened in 2015 in the heart of the Parisian Golden Triangle, the Grand Restaurant is an author’s table, a laboratory of gastronomic thoughts and creation. Jean-François Piège affirms here his convictions, those inspired by a French gastronomy, proud of its values ​​and heritage, looking ahead of it more than in the rearview mirror. The singularity, that of creating as one hears “his” great French restaurant, is then the concern of every moment. Cooking methods such as Modern Stew, such as lobster simmered on shells or grilled veal sweetbreads on walnut shells, the creativity of the caviar-flavored apple and the design of a specially designed podium for cheese is an experience that one lives at the Grand Restaurant. An emotion that seizes upon entry and this door of metallic lace also showing a map of Paris, the intellectual and intangible terroir of the Chef. We then enter the kitchen, as if we entered the house of the cook, before settling in this small room – 10 tables – with strong identity (made in collaboration with Gulla Jonsdottir). Made from noble materials and raw wood and concrete, and of course, this canopy with geometric lines, between art deco inspiration and terrible modernity, it illustrates the cuisine of Jean-François Piège, distinguished for Le Grand Restaurant, by two stars in the Michelin Guide in 2016.

Nestled on the heights of the mythical terroirs of Sauternes, the Hotel & Restaurant LALIQUE is a must-see stopover in the Bordeaux region. Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey invites visitors since June 2018 to a moment of harmony between wine, art, gastronomy and hospitality.
Blending the Lalique style with Sauternes soils, the 10 rooms and 3 suites at this 5-star Relais & Châteaux hotel offer a break from serenity in the heart of the historic Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey vineyard, Premier Grand Cru Classé.

Haven of peace for guests in search of discretion, everything is joined in terms of art and meaning for the same purpose: emotion. The decoration was orchestrated by interior designers Lady Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli, creators of the Lalique Maison furniture and accessories collection. A subtle exercise in style, the rooms and suites combine the materials of the time with contemporary details. On two floors, each room and suite has its own typicality. In duplex, the Bacchantes suite offers among others unique views overlooking the hilly landscape of the appellation and the historical vineyard plot.
Adorned with one hundred and twenty Champs-Elysees in lustrous gold crystal on the ceiling, the restaurant accommodates 40 covers, 15 of which under a glass roof facing the Enclos, historical plot of the castle, giving the impression of sitting in the vineyards. With its crystal and porcelain decorations, the art of the table is an ode to Lalique’s savoir-faire in partnership with large partner Maisons: Fürstenberg porcelain plates, Christofle napkin rings inlaid with crystal pieces Grapes … refinement is the key word !
In the kitchen, Michelin-starred chef Jérôme Schilling and his team offer a specific and unusual cuisine inspired by the specificities of each vintage and rigorously selected products. In January 2019, the restaurant received a Michelin star, thus offering a first Michelin star restaurant in Sauternes. In search of the new and in the skill of the know-how, the chef puts the viticultural technique at the service of his creations. This synergy in the gastronomic experience is expressed for example with a tartar of Bazas beef, Comté moss and infusion with Sauternes with truffle from Sainte Croix du Mont. The LALIQUE table at Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey is also worth a visit for its impressive wine list of 2600 references, selected by Chef Sommelier Adrien Cascio. The three historic cellars bring together more than 22,000 bottles from the world’s finest vintages, as well as a selection of more accessible nuggets.
