The wine

A timeless classic, with a French feel and an elegance that has resulted in it becoming a must-have Cava on any wine list taking a pride. Gramona Imperial is also the house's flagship, elegant, sumptuous and very close to the French Champagnes, despite containing only 10% Chardonnay grapes.

Made from a coupage of Xarel·lo (50%), Macabeo (40%) and Chardonnay, Gramona Imperial is matured for 48 months in bottle, a time period well above that required for a Gran Reserva, with the addition of a small amount of liqueur d'expédition originating from the winery's own century-old solera. A symbol of elegance that has made this Cava a true classic among its faithful imbibers and brought about its notability as one of the most renowned Cavas in the world.

It has an intense nose, with aromas of stone fruit and white flowers, bakery notes, citrus fruit peel, dried fruits and nuts, and subtle toasty, yeasty and buttery hints, all in absolute balance. A pleasant entry, generous in the mouth, and creamy. Velvety bubbles and a refreshing finish which recalls the white flowers and fruit with bakery undertones. A Cava with structure which year after year displays its personality and finesse, offering superb versatility for pairings, from drinking beforehand as an aperitif to during and after lunch or dinner.
