Product Description
Details

In 1962, Josep Mata Capellades, the founder of the Recaredo winery, decided to craft an age-worthy Spanish sparkling wine wine which was able to express the potential of Xarel·lo and Macabeo to produce world-class sparkling wines. The result was Recaredo Reserva Particular.

This Corpinnat sparkler comes from very old Demeter certified Xarel·lo and Macabeo vineyards. They are farmed following the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

The Xarel·lo grapes were fermented in oak barrels, while the Macabeo completed the process in stainless steel tanks.

Then this Corpinnat sparkling wine was blended, bottled and aged on its lees for 98 months.

Finally, Recaredo Reserva Particular 2011 was manually disgorged and added no shipping liquor. The disgorging date is printed on the back label.

Open the bottle 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The organic sparkling wine Recaredo Reserva Particular is medium yellow with some green tinges.

Nose

Amazingly pure and deep. Terroir-bound and very well defined, with alluring mineral undertones and lively floral notes, nuanced by some delicate spicy and buttery remembrances, coming from the fermentation in oak of Xarel·lo. Ever-evolving, as the wine opens we also smell aromas of aniseed, smoke, dry fruit and citrus, typical of the Macabeo variety.

Palate

Dry and crisp, with a laser-like precision and still room for growth. Exceptional acidity, rock-solid structure and remarkable integration of bubbles. This Corpinnat Brut Nature sparkling wine from bodega Recaredo suggests white fruit, Mediterranean underbrush, white flowers, orange blossom and lemon rind. Distant echoes of smoke and flint, and again a buttery remembrance. Extremely long, complex finish. 

Our personal opinion

The formidable Recaredo Reserva Particular 2011 is, plain and simple, a world-class sparkler.
