Details for Vall Dolina Reserva Brut Nature
Firmly rooted in the small town of Olesa de Bonesvalls, right in the heart of the Garraf Massif, Raimon Badell produces one of the Penedés district’s most traditionally crafted Cavas, in his capacity as oenologist and owner. The name ‘Vall Dolina’ refers to the relief formed by the valleys or depressions in the land known as dolinas.
The Bodega Can Tutusaus only produces wines that have undergone ecological farming methods on poor soils of reddish clay and limestone, typical of those found in the Garraf. Not many bottles are produced (just 20,000), meaning they are one of the few that can still carry out manual disgorging without freezing the sediment, in the purest traditional style. It is quite incredible to watch it happening.
We have chosen the Vall Dolina Reserva Brut Nature as this is a Cava perfect in quality and structure, which many other, considerably more expensive, Cavas would love to emulate. Vall Dolina Reserva Brut Nature has the usual trio of Cava components with a touch of Chardonnay to add structure and vinosity. Light, tertiary aromas, rich in toasty notes, bitter almonds and confectioner’s custard. As a relatively young vintage, compared with other Cavas, its elegance is truly delightful and well rewarded by the acidity and dryness of the Brut Nature. The carbonic element has been handled properly, which has resulted in a most appealing Cava that holds up perfectly, with a final touch of real minerality coming through from marine fossils to linger on the palate.
Vall Dolina, it has been an absolute pleasure!

Very good price/quality ratio

Celler Masia Can Tutusaus
The origins of this cellar date back to 1349, but it was not until 1986 that Sr. Joan Badell i Badell made the necessary alterations to modernise the winery and thus enabled the production of Cava to begin, with Brut and Brut Nature both produced in limited amounts. From 1998 onwards, organic farming methods were introduced which had a direct impact on organising and streamlining the various tasks undertaken, and now reflect the significantly different way in which these win...
