Marques de Gelida Cava Brut Exclusive Gran Reserva 2012
|Brand||Marques de Gelida|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Marques De Gelida Brut Gran Reserva comes from slightly older vines and a higher elevation of the vineyard. This spent 40 months on its lees prior to being disgorged. The final blend encompasses five grapes: 20% Xarel-lo, 25% Macabeo, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 15% Paralleda. This is slightly drier than the Kila Cava, shows notes of fresh apple skins, white currants, grapefruit and other assorted citrus in a fresh, dry, light-bodied and amazingly pure style. Drink it over the next year.
Wine EnthusiastWhile this smells slightly briny and gritty, there's controlled energy and a sense of quality to the palate. Peppery, dry flavors of apple and peach are lasting on a stone-fruity-heavy finish.
Wine SpectatorWell-knit and creamy, with notes of apple tart, toasted almond, lemon curd and spring blossom riding the fine bead and smoky undertow. Drink now. 3,000 cases made.
