My favourite sparkling from Gramona year in and year out is the 2005 Celler Batlle Gran Reserva Brut. It is made with a preferred, top-range blend of 75% Xarello and 25% Macabeo and is topped up with their famous centenary reserve of old wine kept in a solera system since the times of their grandfather. The wine matured in the bottle in contact with the lees for 110 months, almost 10 years! It has a decadent nose of balsam, sourdough and diesel-like minerality with some medicinal touches, quite aromatic. Here they use their famous old dosage that always give the wine that special Gramona character. The palate is quite sharp, with very good acidity and lively bubbles that are small and abundant. As good as anticipated.View more
Reviews of Gramona Celler Batlle 2005
You have to open a few minutes before drinking it.
Very light flavour. Reminds me of other sparkling wines, aromas of yeast. Quite sweet.
The ideal wine to finish a meal.
