A premium Cava, Gran Juvé y Camps Gran Reserva Brut is made from grapes coming from an estate located near the town of Espiells, in the heart of Penedès.
The vines are grown in a pure Mediterranean terroir composed of clayey-limestone soils. Vineyards are located at an altitude under 245 metres above sea level, protected from the cold, northern winds by the Montserrat mountains.
This Gran Reserva Brut crafted by Juvé y Camps was meticulously vinified following the traditional method. After the completion of secondary fermentation, the wine spent a minimum of 42 months ageing on its bottle. Classy packaging, with a vintage bottle and an elegant box.
Drink Gran Juvé y Camps Gran Reserva Brut 2013 over the next 5 years.
The Cava Gran Juvé & Camps Gran Reserva Brut has a pale golden colour with steely tinges.
Complex stuff. Fresh notes of flowers, hints of white fruit, some well-integrated wooden remembrances and notions of pastry, dry fruit and honey. The elegance of Gran Juvé Brut is remarkable.
Intense and creamy, but not in the least heavy. The wine coats the palate with notes of puff pastry, cooked white and yellow fruit, custard sauce, some toasted notes and a remembrance of citrus. This Cava by Juvé y Camps has some tiny, almost unnoticeable bubbles, very good acidity and a long, delicate finish.
