Review

A wise and wonderful combination of Chardonnay, the star of Champagne and Burgundy, with two of the most emblematic and traditional Catalan grape varieties, Macabeo and Xarel·lo, Colet Gran Cuvée Extra Brut is an extremely well-balanced sparkling wine — a splendidly rounded and aromatically precise wine. Its golden colour gives a clue as to its character; a slightly sweet taste with fine yet long-lasting bubbles bursting with excellent aromas in the mouth. Aromas of apple and pastries, candied lemon peel and barely dry grass. Its delightful taste lingers in the mouth after every sip and its versatility suggests an immense variety of food pairings.

An elegant, gastronomic and mineral wine, well-balanced thanks to its 24 months ageing and a light hint of sugar tasted in each sip. Environmentally-friendly work methods, both in the vineyards and in the winery, together with the precision and elegance always found in Sergi Colet's wines, make for an extraordinary and unmistakable result — a sparkling wine with perfectly integrated bubbles, aromas of fine lees and fennel, and a delightful blend of ripe white fruit, pastries, and hints of sweet spices. The Colet Gran Cuvée Extra Brut is a long and flavoursome wine, but also sharp and light. An elegant citrus acidity finish and discrete bitterness highlight its unctuous feel and splendid roundness, making this sparkling Penedès wine the ideal choice for almost any occasion. Smoked fish, white meat dishes, or a summer evening meal provide the perfect excuse to uncork a bottle and try this exceptional blanc de blancs. Do not over-chill it and remember to serve it in a glass large enough to bring out its personality — this is no normal sparkling wine, it is a Colet.
