We complete this cava’s long, nine-year aging process with our most prized liqueur d’expédition (dosage), a liqueur made from barrel-fermented Xarel·lo.
Tasting notes: Glossy, golden color with elegantly fine bubbles. Crisp and elegant aroma of citrus and floral notes, with delicate pâtisserie aromas imparted from yeast. Balanced, fresh, and creamy beginning leads to toasty notes, then a kiss of aniseed followed by the soothingly long and fresh aftertaste.
Varieties: Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay, Xarel·lo (20%, aged in French oak barrels).
Food Pairing: Smoked food, seafood, oven-baked white fish, and oysters.
Restaurant En Rima recommendation: Slow-roasted beef rib served with a reduced Mastinell Merlot sauce and creamy gnocchi. Tartar of scallop and lemon fish with red tiger milk, avocado, cucumber, and mango.
