Bright, straw yellow colour with golden tinges. This cava Llopart Leopardi Brut Nature Gran Reserva is very attractive to the eye.
Elegant and complex, this Gran reserve Cava by Cavas Llopart smells of citrus and garrigue, alongside with some creamy aromas, notions of orange rind and white flowers and delicate nuances of withered leaves and dry fruit.
Delicate and well-crafted, this Brut Nature Cava has some perfectly integrated bubbles and a wonderful texture. Rich and complex, with fresh touches of lime and lemon, some creamy notions of pastry and hints of orange blossom, white flowers, raw almonds and and aromatic herbs. Great acidity and long, persistent finish.

A very respectable sparkler. Totally controlled, with great definition, it does not forget the sensuous side.
From one of the most interesting Cava producers. This I find extremly attractive, with a creamy and caressing palate, and that unique freshness that best Cavas had.
