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.

Castell d’Age 2011 Cava Aurèlia Brut Nature Gran Reserva

This is an authoritative, fine Cava which brings off the challenge of no dosage with aplomb. The addition of 10% Chardonnay to the traditional blend of Macabeo (40%), Xarel-lo (40%) and Parellada (10%) lends it a measure of suaveté, while the minimum of 30 months’ aging on the lees imparts a beautifully complex and long flavour. This is the acme of refinement in Cava, well worth its price.

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 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.
