Mas Comtal Brut 2015 – DO. Penedes
As Joan Nebot, wine critic, says in one of his recent articles, our sparkling wines are among the few Penedès “champagnes”.
Unlike all sparkling wines covered by DO Cava (an artificial region that includes almost all wine-producing Catalonia and small “islands” where there is a producer: Requena, Valencian Community, Rioja, Navarra and Extremadura), our sparkling wines are produced in a specified region.
This case concerns a wine with a secondary fermentation, a blend of Xarel·lo with Chardonnay. The Xarel·lo comes from the oldest vines in the vineyard – between 60 and 85 years old.
