Xarel·lo monovarietal from the Espiells estate. Beautiful golden colour and surprisingly deep, complex nose. Intense notes of stone fruit (peach, apricot, loquat, etc.) coexist with brioche and butter. As it opens up, it starts to develop a faint background of nuts and curry, as well as toasted notes, from the long ageing. It is creamy, well-structured and incredibly fresh on the palate. It has a persistent aftertaste of dried apricots, walnuts and fine pastries.

100% xarel·lo
Espiells estate

La Capella is at the highest part of the Espiells estate, two hundred metres above sea level. It is a unique vineyard, with stark landscape and a shallow soil bed. The magnificent conditions found in the Penedès region are perfect for growing xarel·lo grapes in Espiells. This yields grapes with loads of character and spirit, which is essential to this long-aged cava. The terroir reinforces the hallmarks of this cava: structure, complexity and freshness.

Tasting notes

The latest stroke of genius from Juvé&Camps, with small, persistent bubbles and a complex, elegant nose reminiscent of its long ageing, with notes of ripe fruit, flowers, grass, brioche and nuts. Full, creamy, intense and well-balanced.

Pairing

The dream world of Dabiz Muñoz came into our lives after Diverxo became the first restaurant in Madrid to receive three Michelin stars. So, his fiery temperament and the success he and his team have garnered come together in a never-ending work that always surprises.

"La Capella pairs perfectly with the iodine notes and the pepper in this dish; its freshness highlights the flavours of the Andalusian marinade, the cheeks and the cockles. The cava refreshes and accompanies the powerful flavours of the ingredients in all of their contrasts".
