Gran Codorniu Chardonnay 2014
Pale yellow with golden highlights. Clarity and brilliance. A fine mousse forming a persistent crown, which denotes its thorough fermentation in the bottle.
Supple toasty notes intermingled with spring fruits: peach and cherry underlain with brioche and dried fruits and nuts from its ageing on the lees. Very complex with elegant notes and generous aroma that are enhanced the longer it remains in the glass.
A rounded, complex, balanced and creamy mouthfeel. The butteriness of Chardonnay has enabled us to craft thie Brut nature without adding sugars.
An ideal cava for accompanying a wide variety of dishes: risotto, seafood, duck magret, stews, smoked dishes and heavy spices.
