This is the new vintage of Gramona Imperial Brut Gran Reserva, the entry-level Spanish sparkling wine of the Gramona winery, which consistently delivers quality and affordability.
All of the grapes come from vineyards farmed following the guidelines of organic and biodynamic farming.
Selected on site and in the cellar, the grapes of this Cava from Penedès were gently pressed and separately vinified according to the variety.
Then they were blended and bottled. Finally, Gramona Imperial Brut Gran Reserva 2014 was aged for 48 months and added shipping liquor after its disgorging.
Drink through 2025.
The Cava Brut Gramona Imperial Brut Gran Reserva has a pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Ripe white fruit, nuanced by hints of citrus, flowers and aromatic herbs. As this organic Cava by Gramona opens, it suggests some remembrances of pastry, dry fruit, aniseed and citrus. Elegantly mineral background with a floral note.
Palate-coating, fresh and creamy, this Cava Gran Reserva Brut is defined by flavours of pastry, flowers, aromatic herbs and ripe white fruit. Gramona Imperial has a smooth mousse, a lively acidity and a long finish, mixing some citrus and toasted remembrances.

This entry-level sparkler by Gramona is super cool. Makes me wonder why I've spent so much money in average Champagne.
