Castell D’age

ORGANIC

This top-flight producer of dry, long-aged Cava is a superb discovery. With several geographically diverse parcels to work with, the resemblance to Champagne is suggestive. This is Cava with attitude from a woman-run estate that pioneered organic viticulture in Pénédes and is now fully committed to bio-dynamism.

Available Wines



Castell d’Age “1988” Cava Brut Nature Reserva

1988 was the year when Castell d’Age was founded, and this cava made from pure Xarel-lo is intended to represent a peak of the house’s potential for elegant, fine-grained sparkling wines of breed and length. DEMETER CERTIFIED.

Castell d’Age 2013 Cava Aurèlia Brut Nature Gran Reserva

A splendid introduction to the house’s style, showing elegance and length deriving from extended lees-aging and fastidious treatment in both vineyard and cellar. On the dry side, with very modest dosage, this is a Cava that punches way above its weight. Like all Castell d’Age sparkling wines, it is hand-riddled.

Castell d’Age 2016 Garnatxa SO2 Free (Pénédès)

It is not surprising that an estate with Castell d’Age’s organic long-standing organic credentials would wish to see what they could do in the “Natural” wine sphere. What is surprising is just how sheerly normal and delicious this licorella-grown example is, bursting with vigour and fruit. DEMETER CERTIFIED.

Castell d’Age 2016 L’Essencia del Xarel-lo (Pénédès)

Grown in a single stony, chalk plot planted to vines over 25 years old, this wine packs an astonishing amount of sour-tinged yet succulent fruit into its 12.5% frame. We were allocated just 50 cases.

Castell d’Age N.V. Cava Cuvee Anne Marie Brut Nature

A splendid introduction to the house’s style, showing elegance and length deriving from extended lees-aging and fastidious treatment in both vineyard and cellar. On the dry side, with very modest dosage, this is a Cava that punches way above its weight. Like all Castell d’Age sparkling wines, it is hand-riddled.
