Availability: In stock
The elegant Llopart Original 1887 Brut Nature was first produced in commemoration of the 125 anniversary of Cavas Llopart.
This complex Corpinnat sparkler is a very special product. It was crafted following the same methods the winery used to produce its first Spanish sparkling wine.
The grapes come from three certified organic vineyards located in a mountainous area in the vicinity of the winery, called Les Flandes. The Xarel·lo was planted in 1934, the Montònega one year later and the Macabeo dates from 1956.
The entire winemaking process is wonderfully traditional. Each variety was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then the wine was bottled and, after completing secondary fermentation, Llopart Original 1887 Brut Nature 2011 was aged for 108 months in the bottle.
The delightfully vintage label of this Corpinnat sparkling wine reproduces the one used when the first Llopart Original 1887 was produced, more than one hundred years ago.
The sparkling wine Llopart Original 1887 Brut Nature is medium gold with some bright amber-coloured reflections.
This blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Montònega is subtle, intense and profound. Mediterranean garrigue and dry fruit, with a dash of white flowers and some creamy and bakery aromas, intertwined with lime, bergamot and citrus. There is a subtle mineral background.
This sparkling wine of Cavas Llopart passes through the palate pleasantly and swiftly, with a well integrated mousse and a steely acidity. There is creaminess, notes of aromatic herbs, a dash of chamomile and chinotto, remembrances of white flowers and notes of puff pastry. This Corpinnat organic sparkling wine is dry, textured and fresh, with an elegantly bitter, slightly mineral finish.
