Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Content: Macabeo (45%), Parellada (45%), Xarello (10%) Winemaking Notes: Made only in the best vintages, using stringently selected grapes from the top vineyard estates of Juvé Y Camps. Aged an average of four and a half years in the bottle before release. Tasting Notes: Fragrant on the nose with subtle and unique hints of wild flowers and citrus. Rich and delicate on the palate, with a finish of great length and finesse. Food Match: The best choice for fine delicacies such as caviar, foie gras, and strong cheese. Also a delightfully "showy" aperitif. Interesting: This is the prestige cuvée of Juvé Y Camps. It is served regularly in state dinners of Spain's royal household. It is the finest of their products and lies amongst the elite of the world's sparkling wines.

About Juve Y Camps:

Juvé y Camps has been a family run company for three generations and has garnered an international reputation. Over two hundred years ago, Joan Juvé Mir, a bold and enterprising vine grower with ideas way ahead of his time, laid the foundations of what would become the family firm.

He began the task which was carried on by his son, Antoni Juvé Escaiola, who, amongst other challenges, had to confront the effects of the terrible phylloxera plague. Advocating replanting, with other leading figures of the Penedes, he led a drive to restore the vineyards and to rebuild the wine production of the region.

A man respected and loved by his contemporaries, his example encouraged his son, Joan Juvé Baqués, to build the family's first winery. He married Teresa Camps Farré, an exceptional woman and an enthusiastic supporter who inspired her husband to launch, in 1921, the first sparkling wine under the "Juvé" brand. It was made in the underground cellars beneath the family home in San Sadurní d'Anoia.
