Bohigas Brut Reserva Cava
Creamy, Persistent Freshness
With over 8 centuries under its belt, Bohigas claims privileged surroundings in the Anoia River Basin in Odena. They produce many varieties of sparkling wine, and this is one of their most classic.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
This Cava presents a fine pale yellow color with bubbles that form a persistent crown. It is fresh, with scents of white fruits like apples and pears on a bed of citric rind and white flowers. The aging process gives it a mildly sliced bouquet with notes of cinnamon and baked biscuits. It is a structured sparkling wine, with a well-balanced acidity from beginning to finish. The bubbles bring it a certain creaminess and volume to the wine, extending its aromas outward. Its balanced finish harmonizes that acidity with a slight hint of sugar on the tongue.
Is a celebratory sparkling wine that can be drank on its own, or accompanying a meal of seafood or light meat dishes with acidic sauces. Because of the mild sweetness in this blend, it can be had with foods that have their own spice kick. If your aim is to serve this bubbly with a cheese board, a selection of goat cheeses will not steer you wrong, couples with stronger-tasting soft cheeses like Gruyère, Colby, and Harvati. We love it with a bit of our Petit Langres AOC by Fromagerie Beillevaire.
BOUNTY FROM TWO ESTATES
Between the Can Macià Estate in Òdena and the Can BatlleVell in Gelida, Bohigas gets the best of the grapes available in Barcelona. The longer-historied Can Macià providing most of the Cava-based wine grapes while the Can BatlleVell Estate produces the grapes for their still-wine varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright — but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
