The Freixenet family vineyard "La Freixenada" in Sant Quinti de Medlona has soils that are chalky and stratified, ideal for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietals. Freixenet produces only méthode champenoise sparkling wines. The wine goes through two fermentations with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. Elyssia Gran Cuvée Brut is aged for up to fifteen months in a cave.
Elyssia Gran Cuvée Brut brings the idea of symmetry to life with combination of traditional Macabeo and Parellada Cava grapes blended with international favorites Chardonnay and Pinot Noir
Elyssia Gran Cuvée Brut offers sophisticated bouquet of roasted nuts, citrus fruit and honey with layers of complexity through the palate. Flavors of lemon and melon are followed by a spicy finish.
"Elegant, delicate white flowers and peach aromas. Honey, pineapple and creamy vanilla on the palate. Worth every penny."
"Pale gold hue with persistent, driving bubbles. Forward lemon drop chalk aromas with a hint of seashore. Ripe flavors of pear and apple brightened by fresh, youthful acidity. Dry, crisp finish with notes of bread dough and ginger."
