Winemaker Notes

Pale straw yellow, clean and brilliant. Fine bubbles with continuous beads and a persistent mousse. Displays delicate aromas of tropical fruit such as pineapple, as well as citrus, grapefruit, and lime. Soft on the palate with elegant citrus notes. Well balanced and refreshing. The freshness and delicacy of the Brut make it an ideal aperitif. It also goes well with shellfish and white fish. Suitable accompaniment for sushi and sashimi or lightly spiced carpaccio.

James Suckling
The enticing lemon and apple nose pulls you into this ripe and elegant sparkling wine with a long, compact finish.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
This is a Cava of major historical importance and yet is just as relevant today. Fresh white peach, grapefruit and lime peel deliver softly onto the palate. You can't miss the stand-out packaging.

Codorniu, Penedes, Spain
Image of winery
This prestige of Codorniu has been forged throughout five centuries. The history of the house begins in the mid-sixteenth century, with Jaume Codorniu, farmer and wine maker, proprietor of an estate and cellar in the Penedes region. Codorniu established a new tradition in the Penedes region with the creation of cava, which was destined to change the viniculture of the region and establish its name and wines throughout the world. Codorniu experienced its first expansion between the end of the last century, and the beginning of this one. At first, production of sparkling wine stood at about three thousand bottles, but very shortly afterwards, just before the First World War, this was increased to three hundred thousand. This development was mainly due to the constancy of the Codorniu family, and to the new elaboration methods and technology applied in the caves, on many occasions created by the family; low temperature fermentation, taking advantage of sugars present, conservation of the musts in adequate refrigeration systems, or clonal selection of the vines, ancestors of those which are cultivated today in the Codorniu vineyards.

A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
