Straw yellow with golden highlights with very bright tones. On the nose, it is deep, intense and complex. Candied white fruit - peaches, golden apples. Lemon peel citrus aromas. Distinct hints of herbs – rosemary, thyme,
laurel. Moss, hay. The ageing notes are endless, toast crusts, hazelnuts, walnuts, toffee, coffee, praline, mocha, boiled sweets, and puff pastries. Powerful on entry on the palate with infinite nuances. A balance of maturity and freshness. Fine, soft, creamy bubbles, filling and caressing the palate. Expressive retro-olfactory aromas of the fruit and the notes from long ageing already found on the nose, topped off by a mineral touch.
This cava will be enjoyed with the most exquisite dishes. It pairs well with all types of food and recipes and is an ideal match throughout an entire “tasting menu”. But of course, good company and great occasions are what suit it best.
