Roger Goulart, Gran Reserva Brut, Cava, Catalonia, Spain 2017
(at Weekend Wines tasting, 21 Sep 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2032
This gran reserva, aged for 48 months, is a blend of the classic Cava grapes: Xarel-lo (60%), Macabeo and Parellada (20% each). Citrus, apple, white peach and yeasty bakery aromas. A rounded and deliciously creamy palate, with tiny, persistent bubbles and notes of ripe lemon, stone fruit, nuts, crème pâtissière and a hint of florality, plus super freshness on the finish. A lovely sparkler for any celebration. Rioja-based CVNE owns Roger Goulart, with its 20ha of vines in Alt Penedès.
