The elegant Llopart Original 1887 was produced in commemoration of the 125 anniversary of the Llopart winery.
This Gran Reserve Cava is a complex and unique product, crafted following the same methods the winery used for its very first cava.
All of the grapes were sorted from three different, very old, low-yielding grapevines located in the mountains near the winery.
The entire winemaking process is wonderfully traditional. After a meticulous process, this high-end Cava was aged for a minimum of 60 months in the bottle.
The delightfully vintage label of this Spanish sparkling wine reproduces the one used when the first Llopart Original 1887 was produced, more than a hundred years ago.
Drink over the next 5 years.
The Cava Llopart Original 1887 has a beautiful golden colour with some bright gold reflections.
Very aromatic, intense, and profound. This Gran Reserve Cava made from Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Montónega reveals the aromas of time, as well as numerous dry fruit notes, hints of toasts, garrigue, flowers and some creamy and bakery aromas intertwined with delectable white fruits and citrus. A subtle mineral background.
Potent and complex, while maintaining an immensely enjoyable delicacy and a remarkable elegance. This Gran reserve Cava by Caves Llopart passes through the palate pleasantly and swiftly, with very well integrated carbonation and excellent acidity. There is creaminess, notes of aromatic herbs, a dash of chamomile, remembrances of white flowers and notes of a pastry store. This cava is dry and fruit forward, with a finish that is very pleasant and persistent.
