Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Llopart Leopardi Brut Nature Gran Reserva, one of Penedès' most interesting Spanish sparkling wines.

This artisan Cava is made from a blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada, the three traditional varieties, plus a touch of Chardonnay.

All of the grapes come from estate vines located near the town of Subirats, in the heart of Penedès.

Vinified in a traditional manner, secondary fermentation of Leopardi Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2012 took place inside the bottle. After that, this Gran Reserve Cava was aged for 48 months prior to its commercial release.

The vintage label, which reproduces a design from the year 1887, provides information about the origins and the long winemaking tradition of the Llopart winery, which dates back to the fourteenth century.

Production under 35,000 bottles. Drink now to 2025.

Appearance

Bright, straw yellow colour with golden tinges. This cava Llopart Leopardi Brut Nature Gran Reserva is very attractive to the eye.

Nose

Elegant and complex, this Gran reserve Cava by Cavas Llopart smells of citrus and garrigue, alongside with some creamy aromas, notions of orange rind and white flowers and delicate nuances of withered leaves and dry fruit.

Palate

Delicate and well-crafted, this Brut Nature Cava has some perfectly integrated bubbles and a wonderful texture. Rich and complex, with fresh touches of lime and lemon, some creamy notions of pastry and hints of orange blossom, white flowers, raw almonds and and aromatic herbs. Great acidity and long, persistent finish.

Our personal opinion

Not only enjoyable, but also remarkably complex, Llopart Leopardi Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2012 black label proves that great Cavas are second to none.

From one of the most interesting Cava producers. This I find extremly attractive, with a creamy and caressing palate, and that unique freshness that best Cavas had.
