Cavas Gran Claustro

You are here

When United States president Dwight Eisenhower visited Spain in 1959, Perelada was commissioned to choose a cava for the reception banquet, and for the occasion it chose one of its own small reservas. The idea for the creation of Gran Claustro was born from the resounding success of this choice. It is now a cava with an international reputation.

Cava Gran Claustro 2016

When the USA president Dwight Eisenhower visited Spain in 1959, a small selection of Perelada’s cava was chosen to be served at the reception banquet. The absolute success of this experience gave birth to the idea of creating a high quality cava: the Gran Claustro. This is a handmade cava that ages in the cellar of the monastery annex to the Perelada Castle. The same cellar located under this splendid gothic cloister where the Carmelite monks made wine more than six centuries ago.

Designation of origin: Cava
Varietals: Chardonnay ( 60%), Pinot Noir (40%).
Ageing: Minimum of 24 months in the bottle, before disgorging.
Tasting note: Pale yellow colour, with hints of green. Clean and bright. It has a generous and steady bubble stream that forms a perfect crown. On the nose it there are ripe fruit aromas and ageing tones. This wine has a well balanced taste, slightly fruity, dry and smooth. It is also broad and long in the mouth.
