Recaredo Reserva Particular Gran Reserva
4 of 6

Recaredo, Reserva Particular Gran Reserva Brut Nature, Cava 2002
A blend of 60% Macabeo and 40% Xarel-lo. It feels ageless – these wines just don’t mature to the same pattern as Chardonnay. Remarkable texture: elastic but soft; a big, earthy wine that becomes much more wine-like in the glass – totally different to Turó d’en Mota (left). Subtle, expressive and very long. 18pts/20 (93/100pts)
