Product Description

Produced by Masia Can Mayol under the Clàssic Penedès label, the wine Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel is made from certified organic vineyards.

Virtually a varietal Xarel·lo, the grapes come from over 70-year-old vines planted in the Garraf mountain range, a limestone-rich subzone of DO Penedès. This Spanish sparkling wine is complemented with 8% Chardonnay.

As for the winemaking process, half of the Xarel·lo base wine was fermented in French oak barrels, and the other half completed the process in stainless steel tanks.

Then the sparkling wine Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel 2019 was bottled, went through secondary fermentation and was aged for about 30 months before hitting the market.

No shipping liquor was added to this organic sparkling wine after its disgorgement.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The sparkling wine Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel is medium yellow with some steely tinges.


This blend of Xarel·lo and Chardonnay is quite appealing. Notes of fresh pastry, lees and English custard, fruit - yellow apples, peaches, ripe apricots - with hints of white flowers and mineral suggestions.


Unctuous and velvety, this Loxarel sparkling wine of Masia Can Mayol has a substantial body and a rewarding sensation of freshness, enhanced by a tense acidity. There are notes of toast and pastry, alongside some fine lees and fruit compote, nicely intertwined with some tiny, caressing bubbles. Long, pleasantly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

Crisp and nicely balanced, the wine Refugi Brut Nature Reserva Loxarel 2019 is a delicious organic sparkler which can perfectly accompany a multi-course meal.

Another fabulously priced sparkling wine from Catalonia. Chard brings smoothness and Xar provides the flesh. A very pleasurable bubbly indeed.
