Bohigas-Cava-Brut "Reserva"

Bohigas
Cava
Brut "Reserva"

$15.00

Property has been in the same family since the 13th Century. They have produced Cava here since the 1920s. An hour's drive NW of Barcelona. Aged 2 years on its lees. Low dosage. Shows loads of tangy, citrus fruit smells and flavors with a nibble of buttermilk biscuits (fresh from the oven) on the mid palate. Finish is tangy, fresh and just a touch nutty. Glorious value.

Notes from the importer:
Since the 13th century, the same family has been farming the land around Fermi Bohigas in the northern Penedes region of Catalunya at the foot of the majestic Monserrat range. We're about an hour northwest of Barcelona outside the town of Odena in the Anoia river valley. Jordi (father) and Maria (daughter) Casanovas are the 35th and 36th generation living on the property since the time of the Moorish occupation when the neighboring hillside served as the final outpost for the Catalans. The 300 hectare estate is split between two properties, “Can Maciá” and “Can Batllevell”. Olive trees, wild garrigue and 110 hectares of grapes are grown on the two properties and the Bohigas wines come exclusively from the Can Maciá section. The farming here is in transition for organic certification, and the northern and higher altitude location make for a perfect micro-climate than tends to be cooler than the rest of the region. The old massia farm house adjoins a century old winery which sits atop a rabbit warren of cave cellars that are still actively used for the production of fine Cava which the family has been producing from only their own vineyards since 1929. The vinifications are done in modern, stainless steel vats with perfect control of temperature and cleanliness while the cellars are still used for hand riddling of the Cava bottles.
