CAVA'S PRODIGAL SON

If there are heroes and villains in the Spanish wine scene then Gramona is both. Long held as the pinnacle of Cava, Gramona left the DO to head up a new sparkling category called Corpinnat. This wine would be made from 100% organic, estate grown indigenous Spanish grapes. No Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, no carting in fruit from far flung corners of Spain, and oh, all of the lees-ageing requirements would be double or more for good measure. The estate’s commitment to quality is so noble that even their most humble wine is labelled as a Cava Gran Reserva. The following wine is undoubtedly better than most Cava. Is Gramona a sparkling iteration of Super Tuscans, throwing off the chains of a DO that's failed them? Or are they Lebron leaving the Cavs for Miami just when things are getting good? We've had the argument ourselves at AOC, and for now we've agreed to disagree- what matters is the smokey toasty bouquet, the tangy bite of kumquat rind on the finish. To get this much toast in a classic Champagne, you’d need to spend three times this price. Whatever DO it is, it's proof that Spain still makes fantastic & unique bubbles.
