Maria Rigol Ordi Microtiratge 6 Cava Gran Reserva 2016

Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainMaria Rigol Ordi is a 5th generation family of Cava makers since 1897, based in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. Along with their main range of Cavas, they also began producing microtiratges, small experimental productions of unique cavas, in 2013. This, #6, is all xarel-lo from the 2016 vintage, with ample time on lees until disgorgement in February 2022 (disgorged to order). 2060 bottles. Super yeasty and savoury, with dried apple, toast and bitter lemon along a slight, bone-dry palate, finishing with toasted dry spices. Serious stuff this, and one for the purists.Tasted: 14 January 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
