This Cava Reserva Brut is made only from the best harvests with free-run juice from chardonnay grapes grown in the Can Rius vineyard, within the estate of Espiells. Beautiful golden colour, superb foam and small, abundant bubble, it is distinguished in its expression, with lively notes of white fruit (peach, apple), honey, grapefruit, toasted bread and dairy that are typical of the variety. It is exuberant in the mouth, with clear freshness, considerable intensity and fabulous creaminess. It has a long, elegant finish.

Can Rius

Tender loving care and close attention in choosing the best chardonnay grapes from the vineyards of Can Rius, within the estate of Espiells. The terrain of this rustic vineyard benefits the process, with poor soil and the least rain anywhere on the property. This is a plus and puts these grapes ahead of others in terms of ripeness. The first grapes are harvested sometime over the first two weeks of August.

Tasting notes

For me, this cava made exclusively with chardonnay grapes, from the Can Rius vineyards, is one of the most unique. This variety has adapted well to our terroir and fully expresses its magnificent characteristics.

The bubble is always small and well integrated, with a very pleasant, creamy mouth feel. Over the years, we’ve realised that its aromas tell us how the year went. Mature fruit, specifically peaches, and prominent dairy notes point to warm years with little rain. However when the weather has been cooler, this shows up in the fresh fruit, herbs and balsamic notes.

"All the flavour of the roasted lobster bursts in your mouth with the tiny bubbles of Milesimé, with an abundant, persistent mouth feel. The complex, elegant, intense aromas of the chardonnay combine perfectly with the vegetable ragout and herb butter".
