Appearance

The enticing Mestres Clos Damiana Gran Reserva has a bright golden colour with some grey tinges and golden glints.

Nose

Complex and multilayered, this blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada nicely harmonizes the fruit, the wood, and the tertiary aromas coming from the long ageing. Sugar-coated fruit, citrus peel, vanilla, honey and candied almonds, punctutated by notions of aromatic herbs, smoke, patisserie, cinnamon and spices.

Palate

Fresh and creamy, this Cava Gran Reserva from bodega Mestres has a bold passage through the palate and a remarkable structure. Extremely gentle, microscopic bubbles, and crisp acidity. Very long finish, with remembrancesof citrus, spices, and fry fruit.

Our personal opinion

A superb sparkling wine, Mestres Clos Damiana Gran Reserva 2006 will make a dream pairing with, for instance, a herb-roast turkey.

World-class sparkler. A great wine in its own right, with an amazing curry-ish note.
