Codorníu, Gran Codorniu Gran Reserva Xarel-lo, Cava 2009

Star buy of 2015

Distinct pear and cream notes of Xarel-lo followed by brisk, herbal and waxy characters on the full mid-palate. Very engaging and drinkable with a well-defined, savoury finish.

Outstanding

In a wooden presentation case with the other two Gran Cordornius. Brisk, vivid and penetrating – a gloriously tooth-tingling Cava. A fascinating Xarel-lo, with limpid, lemon cream notes.
