Product Description

Produced to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Codorníu winery, Jaume de Codorníu Gran Reserva Ars Collecta is an elegant cava gran reserva made from Pinot NoirChardonnay and Xarel·lo, all coming from old vineyards.

The Pinot Noir comes from a vineyard on the northern side of the Prades mountain range, in Conca de Barberà. The Chardonnay is grown in a plot with slate soils situated in the coolest area of DO Cava. The Xarel·lo is sourced from a vineyard in Alt Penedès with deep gravel and calcareous soils.

The hand-harvested grapes were destemmed and gently pressed before being fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. After blending the base wines, the cava Jaume de Codorníu Gran Reserva Ars Collecta 2018 completed secondary fermentation in the bottle and was aged on lees for 40+ months.

All the bottles of this cava brut from Penedès are numbered.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The cava Jaume de Codorníu Gran Reserva Ars Collecta is pale yellow with a subtle rosy tinge on the hue.


Aromas of bone fruit and citrus, with hints of red berries and dry fruit. As this blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Xarel·lo is exposed to air, it suggests a note of viennoiserie, fine lees and some mineral undertones.


Complex, nuanced and smooth-bodied, this gran reserva of bodega Codorníu has a lively acidity and some tiny, well-integrated bubbles. Creamy and fruit-driven, with elegant mineral notes, a citrusy touch and a long finish with remembrances of berries and herbs.

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