Paul Cheneau Reserva Brut Blanc de Blancs
Elegant and affordable. Rivals true non-vintage Champagnes in food compatibility.
Giró Ribot is Spain’s preeminent family owned and operated producer of Cava. The ancestors of the Giro Ribot family, a noble lineage, are closely tied to the Penedès region by bonds which go back over several generations of wine, Cava and spirit producers. The symphonic nature of this
union has been key to the development of Paul Cheneau. The Paul Cheneau line can be best described as elegant Spanish sparkling Cavas with
French influence of styling. Paul Cheneau is classically traditional in their methods of production as well as in the grape varieties used.
HARVEST & AGEING
The winery owns 100 hectares of vineyards of the indigenous Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada grapes, with which Cavas are produced.
The harvest is hand picked in September/October. Wines destined for Cava will form part of the tirage mixture consisting of selected
yeasts and sugar which, once in the bottle will generate second fermentation in strict accordance with the Traditional Method. The first
fermentation is very slow and at low temperature in order to assist the generation of secondary aromas. It is only after a lengthy ageing period that the disgorgement of Paul Cheneau will take place releasing its aromas and bouquet to full satisfaction. Aged in bottle
for 2 years.
Straw-colored with greenish tints, and with a steady effervescence and a formation of small bubbles which generate a gentle crown.
Subtle and delicate, floral, with light toasty notes and recall of dry fruits. Touch of dried herbs. It is appetizing, fruity, well structured,
rich and mature in the mouth. A slightly toasted background flavor with pleasant traces of lees. Altogether elegant. Lingering and
