Finally, this Cava from Penedès was disgorged and added a tiny amount of shipping liquor, which had been previously aged in chestnut barrels.
Belonging to the Cuvées de Prestige series, this Cava gran reserva is only produced in exceptional vintages.
The cava Freixenet Cuvée D.S. Brut Gran Reserva is deep straw with some grey tinges.
Delicate aromas of toast, dry fruit and fine lees, with remembrances of pastry and ripe white fruit. This blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada also suggests marzipan, with a note of citrus and aromatic herbs.
Smooth and elegant, with little, palate-caressing bubbles, and an excellent acidiy. This gran reserva from Freixenet is creamy and citrusy, with ripe white fruit and notes of jasmine, balsam, fine lees and toast. Long finish with some smokey remembrances.
