Vineyard Notes: Xarel-lo and Bastard Negre are co-planted in the 1.92-hectare Clos del Serral plot. The vines were planted in 1954. The plot is dry farmed without any machinery. Hispanic Breton horses are used for plowing.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes were manually harvested using 15 kilo baskets. Then they are further sorted grape by grape by hand. Fermentation occurred with the yeast indigenous to the vineyard in stainless steel and cement. Fermentation lasted 15 days. The wine aged in tank for 11 months before being bottled. Then, the wine aged horizontal on its lees for 100 months (Bottling date August 31th, 2021). It was disgorged without the addition of sulfites.

"The most refined Spanish sparkling wine I’ve ever tasted. Despite aging 17 months in vat and 100 months in bottle, it shows pristine fruit, intriguing stone aromas, zesty freshness. Delicate texture; layered flavors linger on the palate. From an old-vine single vineyard with Xarel·lo and Bastard Negre (a local biotype of Graciano). A top biodynamic terroir wine and a masterwork. Drink 2021-2039" - Pedro Ballesteros
9 out of 10, Vinography 3/20/2022
"A light to medium bronze-gold in the glass with medium bubbles, this wine smells of butterscotch and pears. In the mouth, a velvety, but fading mousse delivers flavors of baked apple, citrus peel, and a hint of wet chalkboard. The finish is pithy with a hint of dried herbs. Good acidity and a nice savory complexion. This 4.75-acre vineyard was planted in 1954 and features deeply fossilized calcareous marl soils. It is a field blend of Xarel-lo and Bastard Negre. Disgorged in September 2021."
