ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC VITICULTURE

Based on careful observation and the management of the factors which influence our terroir and its habitat. We do not apply chemical herbicides or pesticides, but instead we use natural resources, with the primary aim of maintaining a balance in the environment, and we preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils.
Through biodynamics, which goes one step beyond organic growing, we breathe life into our vineyards and seek to raise levels of biodiversity: we preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils, we apply plant-based infusions and decoctions to avoid pest infestations, and we produce our own animal and vegetal compost from our orchard of medicinal plants and our farm of cows, sheep, chickens, and horses.

PRODUCTION

We assume responsibility for each and every step involved in the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle. The grapes are picked by hand, go onto a sorting belt, are transferred by gravity, and pressed whole bunch.

This sparkling wine is aged for more than 120 months.

100% artisanal process. The bottles are sealed with a cork stopper throughout the time they spend resting in the silence of the cellars, which enables the longest ageing periods. We use ‘pupitre’ racks, and riddling. Medium dosage of 5,5 grams/litre. The ‘expedition liqueur’ comes from the family solera, which is well over a century old. A traditional art which has been handed down from generation to generation.

LOGO_CORK-AGED-WITH-cercle-300x300 We use cork stopper for the ageing of all our cavas over 5 years old and for the Argents. Manual processes are carried out: ageing sur latte, riddling, disgorging, labelling, and cellophane.

ESTATE FONT DE JUI

Estate Font de Jui consists of 22.5 hectares, among them, 15 are Xarel·lo and 7.5 Macabeo. They spread from the Anoia River (La Plana, 100 meters above sea level) to the Mas Escorpi hill (350 meters above sea level), which overlooks the town of Sant Sadurní, and its southern slopes. Its soil is clay-limestone: sandy layers along the river and very rocky in the higher and drier areas. Gramona’s organic and biodynamic approach on the Estate, as with all of their land, enriches life in the soil, and helps the plants to better adapt to climate change.
It is a Bordeaux-style Estate, a chateau concept, grouping plots of more than one grape variety, essential to the wine’s identity, around the Celler Batlle winery, located at the heart of the Estate.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Straw yellow with golden highlights with very bright tones.

NOSE

Intense and complex. Ripe white fruit: peaches, golden apple, quince. Citrus fruits like lemon peel. Flashes of aromatic herbs and white flowers, such as pine and cherry blossom. The aging notes are endless: crust of toasted bread, puff pastry, brioche, nuts (such as toasted hazelnuts and almonds), English cream, coffee, praline, vanilla…

PALATE

The entrance is powerful and with enormous nuances. Balance between maturity and freshness. Fine bubble, flux, creamy that gives a feeling of fullness, a caress to the palate. Expressive retronasal way that confirms the memories of fruit and its long aging. Subtle end of mineral memories.

FOOD PAIRINGS

This sparkling will be enjoyed with the most exquisite dishes. It pairs well with all types of food and recipes and is an ideal match throughout an entire “tasting menu”. But of course, good company and great occasions are what suit it best.
