Methode champenoise. Hand harvested grapes are cooled at the winery to 14 degrees Celsius. Whole cluster pressed with very gentle levels of pressure, 50% of the first press is used. Base wines are vinified via spontaneous fermentation in small lots ranging from 1,000L to 5,000L to maintain segregation of the vineyard parcels in the cellar. Base wines are aged in tank sur lie for a short period of time before being racked to bottle. Secondary fermentation is carried out in the bottle, manually riddling.


Aged in bottle for over 108 months.


As one of Spain's oldest wineries and its second oldest producer of sparkling wine, Llopart sought to produce a cava in the style of the wines that the current family's ancestors elaborated in 1887, over 130 years ago. A selection of their oldest and highest altitude mountainside vineyards planted with the oldest clones of Penedès' most important indigenous grapes yield an extremely traditional and refined sparkling wine that is aged for 60 months minimum in bottle. The label is the same design that can be found on the oldest bottles in the family's cellar, dating back to the winery's first vintage of 1887. One of the few designated "Cavas de Paraje," the highest designation of quality a Spanish sparkling wine can achieve.
