Product Description
Details

The flagship wine of Cavas Llopart, Llopart Ex Vite Brut is a remarkable, high-end Corpinnat organic sparkling wine.

Identifiable by its metallic label, this Spanish sparkling wine is made from a blend of Xarel·lo (60%) & Macabeo (40%), coming from Les Flandes, the oldest and best estate-owned vineyard. It is located in the outskirts of Subirats del Penedès.

After the alcoholic fermentation of this top-notch Corpinnat Brut was completed, the base wine was aged in oak barrels. After that, the wine was aged for a minimum of 100 months in the bottle.

Finally, Llopart Ex Vite Brut 2011 was added a tiny amount of shipping liquor, crafted from a blend of the best Xarel·lo wines and an old Champenoise formula dating from the late XIXth century.

Only 3,000 bottles produced.

Appearance

The sparkling wine Llopart Ex Vite Brut is medium straw with some amber tinges.

Nose

Intense and enticingly aromatic, this organic sparkling wine feels amazingly fresh and alive despite being almost 10 years old. This blend of Xarel·lo and Macabeo suggests some aromas of white fruit, orange blossom, lemon rind and fine lees, combined with suggestions of butter, toasted almonds, English custard, fennel and aromatic herbs.

Palate

Again, this sparkling wine of the Llopart winery feels surprisingly lively. Acidity is spectacular, texture is dreamy and smooth, and bubbles dance gracefully on the palate. Toast, dry fruit, white flowers, rosemary, laurel... Complex and with a serious potential for improvement, this Corpinnat brut has a very long finish, with a mineral and zesty tang.

Our personal opinion

A phenomenal, yet not sufficiently appreciated sparkling wine, Llopart Ex Vite Brut 2011 delights the senses with its old-school, understated elegance.
