Review

Recaredo's Reserva Particular was created in 1962 by Josep Mata Capellades, who sought the expression of a well-aged Cava. All of the Recaredo Cavas are matured over a period of many months, but in the case of the Reserva Particular the maturation is exceptional, more than 100 months in the silence and darkness of its cellars until the most subtle of complexities are attained.

At Recaredo, not only are they sentinels of time, but also highly skilled workers of the land, vine growers with a true commitment to the countryside who produce genuine terroir wines, able to bring to light the Alt Penedès region, exhibit the rich nuances of grapes diligently nurtured and reveal the character of the vintage in the most honest and transparent way possible. With this in mind, all the Recaredo Cavas are Brut Nature and vintage Cavas, and their Reserva Particular is no exception: a tremendously complex and mineral Cava, which captures the limestone character of the soils of this easterly Penedès region and conveys a Mediterranean quality with its superb balance between warmth and freshness; with the ripeness of its fruit, from those Xarel·lo and Macabeo grapes, and its minerality; with its toasty notes, of biscuit, dried fruit and nuts, and its citrus, aniseed and fennel notes. In short, a Cava that is full of life, totally dry but having a delicious silkiness on the palate, a velvety texture and very fine mousse. An exhilarating and grandiose Cava.

Para grandes celebraciones

Sinceramente, no soy un gran aficionado de los espumosos. A menudo me parecen inferiores a un vino en aroma y complejidad en boca. No es el caso ni de lejos con este cava, que demuestra que se pueden hacer cavas a la altura de los grandes vinos. Sutil y complejo en nariz, largo y elegante en boca. Dulzura inicial equilibrada por un precioso final seco que te deja pidiendo más. El único inconveniente es que la botella dure tan poco.

Top-Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für einen High-End-Cava (Champagner)

Bei Recaredo in Sant Sadurni, frisch degorgiert getrunken und für mich besser als der grosse Turó d'en Mota. Habe noch nie Haselnüsse in einem Schaumwein herausgerochen - hier schon! Superteil und jeden Cent wert!!!

Para disfrutar uno de los mejores cavas

La cosecha de 2005 es un cava para disfrutar. Casi sin carbónico en boca y con una abanico extraordinario de aromas y gustos en boca.

Cava Recaredo

Cava Recaredo

Recaredo is and has constantly been synonymous with quality, praised for its fine merits: profound, complex, silky, lively and elegant Cavas, with a lengthy lifetime ahead for the most sublime. These Cavas are made from grapes originating solely from their own vineyards, grown organically and bio-dynamically (both certified), without the addition of sugar (always Brut Nature) and with very long ageing in bottle (always Gran Reserva), using natural cork and with disgorgemen...
