Corpinnat Gramona Enoteca Brut Nature 2004
Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Gramona Enoteca Brut Nature. Produced by the Gramona winery, this Spanish sparkling wine features among the world's absolute best sparklers, on a par with some legendary Champagnes.
A blend of Xarel·lo and Macabeo, the grapes come from the Font de Jui estate. Owned by the Gramona family for more than 150 years, all of the farming operations are performed following organic and biodynamic principles.
Meticulously harvested and vinified in a traditional manner, after a gentle pressing the wine musts were fermented in tanks. Then this Corpinnat sparkling wine was blended and bottled, after which it completed secondary fermentation and was aged for over 172 months in the cellar. Clarification and disgorgement were performed manually. The disgorging date is printed on the back label.
As we said, and it is worth repeating, Gramona Enoteca Brut Nature 2004 is one of the world's best sparkling wines.Open the bottle some minutes before drinking.
The sparkling wine Gramona Enoteca Brut Nature has a pale golden color with steely tinges and amber iridescences.
The elegance and complexity of this blend of Xarel·lo and Macabeo is simply astonishing. Ripe fruit-apples, pears, pineapple, apricot... you name it-, alongside a bouquet of flowers and nuances of incense, balsam, menthol, dry fruit, aromatic herbs and notes of pastry and toffee. We also perceive a mineral background and even some salty, marine, iodized touches.
The palate of Enoteca Brut Nature combines an elegance which up to know seemed only great Champagnes could attain, with a degree of focus and precision -otherwise typical of the Gramona wines- which leaves one in awe. Bubbles are integrated to the point of being almost unnoticeable. The freshness and the acidity are superb, as it is the persistence. Having said that, the most interesting thing is that this complexity goes along with the feeling that this Corpinnat sparkler is still very young, and that it has room for growth.
