Intense fragrances and complex nuances abound. Aromas of toasted nuts prevail, like hazelnuts and almonds, which combine with very ripe or dried apricot, as well as sweet, creamy notes of freshly baked pastries. It is elegant, silky and flavorful in the mouth. The fruit is harmonized with the characteristics of the long ageing process. Fresh and lively, with a very balanced acidity and light bitterness. The bubbles are well integrated which gives it the creaminess expected of fine cavas.

30% Xarel.lo, 25% Macabeo, 20 % Parellada and 25% Chardonnay. This cava is aged for approximately 36 months.
