Sparkling with grapes from xarel·lo (white pansa) of organic farming fermented by the yeasts of the vineyard itself and without the addition of any wine product. Its second fermentation in the bottle is done with the addition of must, so all the alcohol of the Bruant comes from the same grape. Its fine bubble, floral aromas, white fruit and nuts, decorate a wine of great purity and freshness.

A clean, fresh cava
This is a very pleasant, fresh and clean cava. As such, it is very versatile and goes well as an aperitif or with a meal. It is 100% Xarlel-lo, but the characteristic flavour of that variety comes out less than in other cavas mostly from Xarel-lo, such as III Lustros from Gramona or Recaredo's Subtil (OK, those are also longer aged and a notch more expensive). With the Bruant Natural, keep a pair of pliers handy when you want to open the bottle: the cork is clamped onto the bottle with an agrafe rather than the usual wire cage.

Bio, Non dosé (sans sucre ajouté) et Sans Sulfites (pas de mal de tête...). Et en plus c'est super bon. Que demander de plus?
Delicado y bueno
Cava muy delicado. Toque espumoso, i fresquito esta muy bueno. Muy recomendado. Les pongo un 7 de 10, y he probado bastantes.

The family-run project of Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets and Cristina Guillén.
