Overview

Recaredo Brut de Brut Gran Reserva Brut Nature Cava 2004 (6 x 750mL), Spain.

Highest ever awarded cava producer in the world by Robert Parker

93 Pts. Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate

Grape Variety: 33% Xarel.lo and 67% Macabeu

Tasting Notes: 7 years in contact with the lees; the ageing process is long and painstaking, producing the subtlest and most complex nuances of the expression of land and time. Sobriety and elegance. Bursting with strength, harmony and completeness, where crystallised fruits fuse with notes of the ripest citrus fruit. The oldest Macabeu and Xarel.lo vines imbue it with the utmost expression of the calcareous soil on which it has grown. Delicate, voluminous and gracious. Food recommendations would be fish based dishes, rissoto, pasta, poultry and carpaccio.

Vineyard: Can Romeu, Galimany, and Mas Oliver

Age of the Vineyard: 40 - 50 years old

Time of Harvest: 20th of August 2004

Altitude: 200 to 270 metres above sea level

Harvest Method: By hand

Winemaking: All the Xarel.lo grapes are fermented in oak barrels. Vinification, production and ageing are carried out entirely in our cellars. The second fermentation and the ageing in bottle in contact with the ``lees`` is done exclusively with a natural cork. Cork is sustainable, recyclable and ideal for retaining the original sense of a long-aged Cava. The final clarification is done by hand in the racks. The uncorking process (Disgorgement) is done by hand without freezing the bottle neck, handcrafted professionalism and respect for the environment. It is a Brut Nature Cava, completely dry without addition of sugar. The date of uncorking (Disgorgement) and the months of ageing on the lees are shown on the back label.

Winemaker: Ton Mata Moliner and Joan Rubió Sadurní

Alcohol: 12.0% vol.

Residual sugars: 0.6 gr/litre

Standard drinks: 7.1

Peak drinking: Allow a minimum 5 months after degorging date (see at the back label) and then enjoy for 7 years or beyond.

Best Served: Serve at 10ºC with a tulip shaped glass (to enjoy at its best). (260512-42)
