The wine

Recaredo's Brut de Brut is one of those Cavas that has converted more than one doubter into a devotee of Cava bubbles. None of the shortcomings occasionally associated with Spanish sparklers will be experienced in this extraordinary wine.

This artisan-crafted product is made solely from grapes of old vines owned by Recaredo and cultivated according to organic and biodynamic principles, with the aim of allowing the vines to be in harmony with the environment. No insecticides or chemical herbicides are used, and any vegetation is left to grow up spontaneously along the rows, so the plants blend in with the countryside. The roots of the Xarel·lo and Macabeo descend deep into these calcareous soils, effectively reinforcing its character and strengthening its aromas.

The concentrated must, resulting from very low yields, partially ferments in barrel (only the Xarel·lo) adding rather more complexity to the equation. Afterwards, the second fermentation in bottle and the subsequent 8 years of maturing will occur in the cellar's peace and quiet. At exactly the right time, the bottles will be disgorged by hand without freezing the neck of the bottle nor adding any sugar, thus preserving the wine's purity. The result is a creamy sparkling wine, generous and full, refined as well as powerful. Minute, elegant and encircling bubbles accompany aromas of pastries, hazelnut skins and candied fruit. Citrus and herbaceous hints bring a refreshing touch to this wine, restrained and full of character, whose aromas seem to want to linger on. Sip after sip, drop by drop, the Brut de Brut makes its mark on the memory.

Recaredo

Recaredo

Recaredo is and has constantly been synonymous with quality, praised for its fine merits: profound, complex, silky, lively and elegant Cavas, with a lengthy lifetime ahead for the most sublime. These Cavas are made from grapes originating solely from their own vineyards, grown organically and bio-dynamically (both certified), without the addition of sugar (always Brut Nature) and with very long ageing in bottle (always Gran Reserva), using natural cork and with disgorgement...
