Guillem Carol Gran Reserva Extra Brut (case of 6)
This Gran Reserva has been aged for as long as 42 months. It uses a mix of two of the traditional grape varieties Parellada (40%) and Xarel-lo (40%) with 20% Chardonnay. This is the 'sister' of the zero dosage Brut Nature but in this one there is a small addition of 5g/l sugar. Despite the dosage in this cava comes out fresh and dry.
It is similar in appearance to the Brut Nature with golden straw color and fine and persistent bubbles. It has hints of sweetness but still wonderful yeast and aged scents mixed with sweet citrus and floral notes. Fresh and creamy on the palate, with some acidity and long finish.
