This is the new vintage of Jaume Giró i Giró Bombonetta Brut Gran Reserva a high-end, little-known Cava from Penedès that is only produced in exceptional vintages.
After a traditional vinification, this Cava was bottled in order to complete secondary fermentation, as the Champenoise method requires. Then, this Spanish sparkling wine was aged for a minimum of 40 months in the cellar.
Crafted by the Jaume Giró winery, this Cava Gran Reserva comes in an attractive demijohn-shaped, retro bottle.
We suggest that you open Jaume Giró i Giró Bombonetta Brut Gran Reserva 2012 about 30 minutes before drinking it.
Very bright and clean, Jaume Giró i Giró Bombonetta Brut Gran Reserva has a pale yellow colour with some golden tinges and steely glints.
Quite complex, showing aromas of white fruit compote, wild berries, orange blossom, lilacs, vanilla, clove and white pepper. On the background, Bombonetta from Jaume Giró suggests some notes of pastry, butter, dry fruit and smoke.
Classy and gentle, with a silky texture and an exceptional integration of the bubbles with the wine. Peach syrup, baked apples, Mediterranean herbs, citrus, remembrances of flour and butter and a dash of red berries. Bombonetta Gran Reserva is clean and sharp, with a long finish.
