Review

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.

Añada 2007

En boca se muestra poderoso, con un ataque espectacular, alta acidez, increíble amplitud con notas cítricas muy frescas. El carbónico está integrado de un modo magistral transmitiendo una sensación de cremosidad y equilibrio increíbles. En retronasal aparecen de nuevo las notas de fruta blanca, los aromas a panadería y los apuntes amargos tipo amaretto. Post-gusto salino y mineral con notas calizas. Persistencia de casi tres minutos, minutos de gran disfrute. Está perfectamente ensamblado aunque aún puede evolucionar los próximos cuatro o cinco años sin despeinarse. Magnífico cava!!

Sublime cava con perfecto empaque sabor/aroma/carbonatado

Si ya un recaredo "básico" es estupendo, este es sublime. Más afrutado que el normal, más aromático, con la carbonatación no tan brava, y con un empaque perfecto aroma/sabor. Hermoso color amarillo bronce. Aconsejado si tiene una velada especial y quiere demostrar que aquí hay cavas mejores que champagne franceses. Si lo va acompañar con comida , madira con pescados, mariscos, carnes blancas, quesos de cualquier tipo y pastas.

Wow! Kann locker mit Champagnern im gehobeneren Preissegment mithalten

Ich durfte bei Recaredo in Sant Sadurni die gesamte Pallette durchprobieren. Der Brut de Brut war für mich - hinter dem Reserva Particular 2007 - der heimlich Star der Bodega! Sehr zugänglich und mit viel Frucht. Für mich waren die beiden genannten Cavas grösser als deren Top-Cava Turó d'en Mota. Ich ziehe diesen Cava den meisten hochpreisigen Champagnern vor!

Un gran favorito

Recaredo siempre es una de mis bodegas favoritas para cava, pero para ocasiones especiales este es uno de mis favoritos dentro de un precio aún razonable. La profundidad que aporta este vintage se aprecia en cada sorbo.

Sobre et rafiné

Brillant, doré au perlage long fin et persistant. Nez élégant de fruit jaune et agrumes murs avec toujours un fond minéral. Long en bouche se développant dans tout le palais laissant une sensation de grande souplesse.

Cava Recaredo

Cava 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...
