Clos Damiana Gran Reserva 2003 is a top-notch Catalan sparkling wine that is only produced in exceptional vintages.
One of the finest wines produced by the respected Celler Mestres winery, it is made from over 50-year-old vines planted in the best terroirs of the Penedès region.
After obtaining the base wine, it was fermented and then aged on its lees in French oak barrels for a period of 14 months.
After that, the wine was bottled to complete secondary fermentation.
Finally, it was aged for more than 100 months until its disgorgement.
Drink this Parker-92 sparkling wine from now until 2020+.
Open the bottle 30 minutes before drinking.
Clean, bright golden colour with some grey tinges and golden glints.
Sugar-coated fruit, citrus peel, mustard seeds, vanilla, honey, candied almonds, pastry and liquor, punctutated by notions of aromatic herbs, smoke, patisserie, cinnamon and spices. Very rich and complex.
Fresh and creamy, with a bold passage through the palate and a remarkable structure. Extremely gentle, microscopic bubbles, and crisp acidity. Opulent notes of toast, citrus, white flowers, sugar-coated fruit, butter, Eastern spices and smoke. Extremely long, complex finish.
