Paul Cheneau Blanc de Blancs Reserva Brut Cava
The ancestors of the Giró Ribot family, a noble lineage, are closely tied to the Penedès region by bonds which go back over several generations of wine, Cava and spirit producers. The symphonic nature of this union has been key to the development of Paul Cheneau.
Giró Ribot is situated at the heart of the Appellation d’Origine Penedès. This beautiful area of Catalonia, halfway between the cities of Barcelona and Tarragona, is bordered to the south by the Mediterranean Sea and to the north by the spectacular and remarkable solid mass of Montserrat. Around 64,247 acres of natural paradise, witness to a long and noble historical tradition and a place where climatic and topographical conditions come together to form an ideal environment for cultivating and producing wines of the highest quality. While the solid mountain mass of Montserrat protects it from cold north winds, the proximity of the sea ensures mild temperatures. In addition, this Appellation d’Origine enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate. The winters are mild, the summers only moderately hot and there is not too much rain. The winery owns 247 acres of vineyards of the indigenous Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada grapes, with which Cavas are produced. The harvest is still hand picked, and second fermentation takes place in the bottle following the Traditional Method
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.
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.
