What distinguishes this cava from other Spanish labels is that it is closer to champagne, due to the characteristics of its noble varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These give this first-growth wine its boldness and complexity, enhanced also by its brief aging in barrels.

Notable, fine and bold aromas of ripe fruit, raisins and sweet aromatic herbs. Also with buttery and toasty notes. On the palate as in the nose, it blends delicacy and flavor; the clean fruit dominates, giving it a sweet and acidic flavor, making it enjoyable and charismatic, and rounding out with a hint of bitterness. Its appearance also stands out, with a constant flow of small bubbles, forming beads and crowns: majestic.
