Product Description
Details

This elegant Cava is produced by the Codorniu winery from old vines.

It is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The first comes from a single estate composed of very poor soils. The second is planted in slate soils on the Prades mountains, the coolest area of the Cava Designation.

After the harvest, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 15 days.

Then the two wines of Jaume de Codorníu Gran Reserva 2011 were blended, bottled and the wine completed secondary fermentation.

Finally, the wine was aged on its lees for more than 40 months.

All of the bottles of this limited edition Cava are numbered.

Drink until 2019.

Appearance

Very bright, clean yellow colour with some subtle rosy tinges.

 

Nose

This Grand Reserve sparkling wine shows aromas of bone fruit, red berries and some remembrances of tropical fruit. On the background, hints of pastry, bread, dry fruit and some mineral nuances.

 

Palate

Smooth and silky, with a lively, crisp acidity that makes it very fresh. Notes of cream, butter, aromatic herbs, raw almonds and flowers. Tiny bubbles and long, mineral finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Versatile and very reasonably priced, this Jaume de Codorníu Gran Reserva 2011 will please both the casual drinker and the hard-boiled aficionado.

This French blend works quite well. Ageing has greatly enhanced the wine.
