Juvé y Camps, Reserva de la Familia Gran Reserva Brut Nature Cava, Penedès, Spain
(at High Street Spain Tasting, 28 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2028
Xarel·lo, the king of Catalan white grapes, is the backbone of this consistently excellent non-vintage Cava at 55% of the blend, along with Macabeo (35%) and Parellada (10%). Long ageing (36 months) also plays its part in shaping a family-produced wine that is highly evocative of its place, with subtle garrigue and fennel notes among the yellow plum, apple, toast, lively mousse and fine acidity.
