We use cork stopper for the ageing of all our sparkling over 5 years old.

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 pro-cess, 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 70 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 and disgorging are carried out by hand. < 3 grams of sugar per liter.

LOGO_CORK-AGED-WITH-cercle-300x300 We use cork stopper for the ageing of all our sparkling 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

Finca Font de Jui consists of about 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 (300 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 Finca, 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 Finca, 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 Finca.

SUSTANINABILITY

100% COMPOSTABLE CELLOPHANE

Produced using a craft process from the early 20th century and recognised as a compostable material by the Catalan Waste Agency.

Our commitment to sustainability is also reflected in the rest of our wines’ packaging that we are gradually replacing with biodegradable materials.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Straw hue with golden highlights.

NOSE

Intense with clear notes of maturity under a constant veil of freshness. Baked apple and sweet pears. Ripe citrus, grapefruit peel. Faded flowers and a herbal backdrop reminiscent of fennel and rosemary. The ageing notes run through a gamut of aromas which includes hazelnuts, pastries, toast, brioche and toffee. The sparkling becomes more and more expressive as it opens up in the glass.

PALATE

Powerful on entry with great structure. The carbon dioxide  is fine and creamy. Loads of candied fruit balanced by the notes from ageing. The balsamic aromas come through again. Lively, refreshing finish on the palate. The aftertaste is never-ending.

FOOD PAIRINGS

This is very much a sparkling wine for enjoying with good food.  With its balance of structure, creaminess and freshness, it works well with all food types and recipes. Appetizers, foie gras, terrines and cold meats. Seafood and fish. Poultry and even rice dishes, stews and hotpots.
