Juve & Camps, Essential Purpura Reserva Brut
It is a cava with a seductive effervescence, with a pleasant and intense aroma, which shows the charm of fleshy fresh fruit and a delicate floral background. Little by little, slight touches of pain grillé appear in the glass, creating a delicious escape from simplicity. With a musical vibration in the mouth, its friendliness gives it an unexpected charm and the acidity makes the sip fresher. It is creamy, pleasant, of simple exquisiteness. Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada ferment separately in stainless steel vats and, after malolactic fermentation, the assemblage is carried out. Once bottled, the second fermentation and the aging take place and the Essential Púrpura spends at least 25 months in the bottle on its lees before it is ready to be enjoyed.
Ideal an aperitif or with eggs benedictine at brunch time, spaghetti cacio e peppe, salmon tartar with dill, vegetable tempura. And don't forget good company!
Juvé & Camps is part of J&C Prime Brand. A centuries-long history, with strong ties to the land, the Penedès. Four generations of a family devoted, body and soul, to winemaking, dedicated to creating premium cava. Winemakers of Brut and Brut Nature Cava, 100% organic Cava, Premium Cava, Cava de Paraje Calificado… always in search of excellence. It all began in 1796 with Joan Juvé Mir, a rigorous and restless winegrower, with a vision for the future, who laid the foundations of the company. Today the estate counts vineyards in Espiells (the largest of the estate), Mediona, and La Cuscona (south of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia). Their Espiells winery forms an impressive architectural complex surrounded by vineyards, in the Bordeaux-chateau-style. Here the wines are made with unusual technical rigor and oenological demands whereas the cellars are in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia which today make up six floors of underground tunnels. In the underground caves of Juvé & Camps the work, meticulous and patient, is governed by traditional and artisanal guidelines, with manual removal of the bottlesin order to provide the cavas with the subtle and complex aromas that, together with the creaminess, freshness, and elegance, characterize the Juvé & Camps cavas.
