Details

The Cava Llopart Ex Vite Brut is the flagship wine of Caves Llopart.

Identifiable by its metallic label, this Gran Reserve Brut is made from a blend of Xarel·lo (60%) & Macabeo (40%), coming from Les Flandes, the oldest and best estate-owned vineyards. They are located in the outskirts of Subirats del Penedès.

After the alcoholic fermentation of this high-end Spanish sparkling wine was completed, the base wine was aged in oak barrels. After that, the wine was aged for a minimum of 60 months in the bottle. Finally, it was added a tiny amount of shipping liquor, crafted from an old Champenoise formula dating from the late XIXth century.

Production of 3,200 bottles.

Drink Llopart Ex Vite Brut 2009 over the next 4 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The cava Llopart Ex Vite Brut has a nice yellow colour with some amber tinges.

Nose

An intense, enticing aromatic expression this Ex Vite from Caves Llopart has. Amazingly fresh and alive despite its long ageing of almost 10 years. Aromas of white fruit, orange blossom, lemon rind and fine lees, combined with suggestions of toast, butter, toasted almonds, English custard, fennel and aromatic herbs.

Palate

Again, this blend of Macabeo and Xarel·lo feels surprisingly lively. Acidity is spectacular, texture is dreamy and smooth, and bubbles dance gracefully on the palate. Toast, dry fruit, white flowers, rosemary, laurel... Complex and with a serious potential for improvement. This sparkling wine from Llopart has a very long finish, with a mineral and zesty note.

Our personal opinion

A phenomenal, yet insufficiently appreciated sparkler, Llopart Ex Vite Brut 2009 delights with its understated elegance.
