    Recaredo

    Een wijnhuis gespecialiseerd in Corpinnat (voorheen cava) en wat doen ze dit goed. De derde, vierde en vijfde staan nu aan het roer en er is weinig veranderd aan de arbeidsintensieve manier van wijn maken in dit wijnhuis Ze hebben alle vijftig hectare omgezet naar biodynamische wijnbouw. De wijnen worden na botteling tussen de 30 en 120 maanden gerijpt in de kelders, elke 14 maanden worden de flessen geschud voor de smaakontwikkeling en de flessen worden met de hand gedegogeerd zonder het bevriezen van de hals. Een aperitief of maaltijdbegeleider van hoge kwaliteit van mediterrane druivenrassen met een bijzonder verhaal.

    Review:

    Since 2008 the old Brut de Brut, a Brut Nature Gran Reserva , has been renamed to reflect its origin. The 2008 Serral del Vell is named after the place (paraje) where the grapes are grown that make up the blend of 52% Xarello and 48% Macabeo. It also carries the new Paraje Calificado category. The soils are very rich in limestone, with 6% to 18% active limestone, depending on the specific area. The wine aged in bottle sur lie for no less than 103 months, eight years and seven months. It has a complex nose, with yeasty-leesy aromas and plenty of balsamic, fennel, bay leaf and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is compact and balanced, with great freshness and that signature bitterness of the Xarello. It has to be one of the finest vintages of this wine. 21,000 bottles produced.

    Recaredo keeps working to improve the referencing of the best terroirs in their wines, and the Brut de Brut has been renamed to Serral del Vell, the name of the vineyard where the grapes are sourced for this brut nature. This change was implemented with the 2008 vintage, and at the same time, the wine was admitted in the Paraje Calificado category, an official Cava appellation category created for the wines from specific places that fulfill certain conditions for quality. Recaredo fulfills and exceeds those conditions, and in fact, they are 100% certified for organic and biodynamic agriculture, using autochthonous grapes, manual harvesting, aging for a minimum of 30 months with lees in bottle and using a natural cork for all their wines (all single-harvest and brut nature wines have been certified for 15 years). What I tasted was an amazing collection of sparkling wines, with one of the best vintages ever of Turó d'en Mota (their flagship) and a rare, one-off 1996 full of complexity and Roquefort-like notes in the nose and palate. As a side note, winemaker Ton Mata started a small family project in 2013 to produce natural sparkling wines with his wife. The first couple of vintages were fermented in Recaredo, and they are now building a small winery of their own. Gutierrez 96/100
