Recaredo Brut de Brut Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2007

Recaredo Brut de Brut Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2007

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2007 Brut de Brut Gran Reserva Brut Nature is sourced from a single vineyard, the Finca Serral del Vell, which appears on the label since 2006. It was approximately equal parts of Xarello and Macabeo. 2007, contrary to what happened in many other regions throughout Spain, was a warmer and drier year than 2006, and the wines are generally riper. I found more developed balsamic aromas, notes of camphor and bay leaf, but it might be because the bottle I tasted was disgorged after 96 months in bottle. However it was amazingly fresh, no doubt because of the low pH (3.06). 50,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2016-2020. 92+ points

I finally managed to visit Recaredo and their old Turo d'en Mota vineyard, one of the oldest in the region. They remain at the top of the Cava hierarchy. Their Enoteca release is only 18 bottles from a given vintage, sold to restaurants, and they are offering 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. I tasted the 1998 last year and it was truly amazing."
