Product Description

The splendid Gramona III Lustros Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a Cava de Paraje Calificado - Cava's designation for its top tier products -  made from a blend composed mainly of Xarel.lo and complemented with Macabeo.

Both are grown in the Font Jui estate, the Xarel·lo in a 4-hectare plot with clayey soils and the Macabeo in 1 hectare composed of sandy soils.

Both are organically farmed, and the winery is also increasingly embracing biodynamic principles in its agricultural procedures.

Produced by Gramona, this Cava Gran Reserva was traditionally vinified following the Champenoise method. First, the grapes were separately fermented in stainles steel tanks.

Then this Brut Nature was bottled and aged for 70 months in the cellar.

Finally, this Spanish sparkling wine was manually disgorged. No sugar was added to the wine after the process. Natural sugar content amounts to 3 grams per litre.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The Cava Gramona III Lustros Gran Reserva has a pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.


Supremely elegant, this Brut Nature Gran Reserva smells of dry fruit and toast, with some delightful nuances of quince, lime and laurel, alongside some remembrances of Mediterranean underbrush and flowers over a mineral background.


Structured, lively and wonderfully textured, this cava gran reserva de Gramona has some small, tingling bubbles and a first-class acidity. Suggestions of citrus, fennel, quince, cypress and bouquet garni. Long finish with some mineral remembrances. There is real complexity here, and it is only beginning to unfurl.

Definitely first class. Besides the suave texture, there is always a note of laurel and citrus that sets this sparkler apart.

I can even begin to say how much I like this Cava. You would have to spent two o three times more to find a Champagne not better, but simply as good as this. It has a character very much of its own. It is balsamic, gently mineral, super classy and wonderfully drinkable.
