The 2006 III Lustros Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a blend of 75% Xarello and 25% Macabeo with very extensive aging of 72 months in contact with the lees before being disgorged. Yep, 72 months is five years, and it shows good complexity with a fine bouquet of antique shop, incense, freshly-baked brioche, fennel and a dash of diesel, lanolin and other mineral/chemical aromas. This is one of the best quality-to-price ratio Cavas in existence today. Drink now-2019. Gramona is a classical Cava house that keeps the old traditions, like bottle aging with the lees under cork, manual processes, an extended contact with the lees in bottle for better integration of the bubbles and extra autolysis aromas plus the use of old solera wines for their liqueur d'expedition in the older wines with extended yeast contact.View more

Fantastic colour. I loved the smell of baking. A little bit salty but it was very good.
I accompanied the 2012 with steamed vegetables.
