Corpinnat Gramona Celler Batlle 2011
Availability: In stock
Located in the Font Jui estate (which bears the Paraje Calificado distinction), the organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards are composed of sandy-clay soils. Climate is Mediterranean.
After a manual harvest, the grapes were meticulously selected and pressed whole bunch. Traditionally vinified, this Corpinnat sparkling wine of the Gramona winery was bottled after completing alcoholic fermentation. Then this organic sparkling wine from Penedès completed secondary fermentation and was aged for a minimum of 120 months.
Manually disgorged, Gramona Celler Batlle 2011 was finally added shipping liquor coming from a centenary solera, one of the Gramona family's most treasured possessions.
The winner of several national and international awards, this Corpinnat sparkling wine is simply world-class.
The sparkling wine Gramona Celler Batlle is deep straw with some golden tinges.
Extremely complex, this blend of Macabeo and Xarel·lo suggests rich aromas of white fruit and aromatic herbs -laurel, thyme...-, nuanced by subtle, endlessly evolving hints of aniseed, white roses, pastry, butter, bread crust, bitter almonds, English custard and toffee.
Surprisingly young and energetic despite being over 10 years old, with smooth, tiny bubbles and a great acidity. This Corpinnat sparkling wine from Gramona is truly phenomenal, and it caresses the palate in a most gentle way. Totally controlled and focused, with a remarkable ageing potential. Long, evocative finish with remembrances of almonds, pastry, aromatic herbs, citrus and white flowers.
