Tasting NotesGran Juvé Camps is produced using only the very best wines made with grapes from exceptional harvests, obtained from our Espiells estate, one of the most celebrated vineyards in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, and from Mediona in the Upper Penedes. It is a cava with an expressive golden colour that still retains pale tones in spite of its long ageing. Its splendid effervescence generates a large number of ephemeral streams of bubbles, which rise up to the surface forming a stable crown. Its aroma is penetrating, complex, light-hearted and very fresh. This is a surprising cava because, despite being a Gran Reserva, it maintains a great deal of freshness in which one can make out clear notes of white flowers and fleshy fruit. Its complexity increases progressively and, very soon, lightly toasted notes and a honey background can be discerned. Its texture in the mouth is intense and evocative - a real joy. Its effervescence gently caresses the palate, revealing all the creaminess of its mousse. Unctuous and very persistent, it leaves us with a memory of its deep, delicate aromas
