Cava is a wine that is under pressure. It should always be well chilled before opening. Always exercise caution when opening a bottle of sparkling wine. Point the bottle away from people and objects. Use a clean towel or cloth to firmly grip the bottle. Gently remove the wire stopper while firmly holding the cork in place. Then with thumb and forefinger, remove the cork slowly from the bottle. Do not let the cork fly. Enjoy!
Mont-Marçal fashions exceptional vintage Cava that ranks among the best and most consistently satisfying sparkling wines in the world. Unlike most sparkling wine producers (which includes the finest purveyors of Champagne as well as Cava), Mont-Marçal vintage dates all of its Reserva Brut so that the consumer knows the age and freshness of the wine. The 2014 Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva is the latest release from this family owned property and is an absolute delight. It promises elegance and a light, airy appeal from the moment it is poured, as its tiny pinpoint bubbles stream exuberantly to the top of the glass. Celebratory and always versatile, the 2014 Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva resonates with supreme elegance, flavor and texture. It offers ethereal scents of spring flowers and golden pears infused with a touch of fennel and a gentle minerality. In the mouth, light, clean, and clearly delineated fruit flavors glide easily across the tongue, while delicate creamy bubbles with a finely beaded texture carry the wine’s charming flavors through to a satisfying and mouth-refreshing finish. In a world in which authenticity is hard to come by, the 2014 Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva makes a delightfully strong case for Cava – Spain’s esteemed sparkling wine. Enjoy the delicious 2014 Brut Reserva from Mont-Marçal well chilled (38°-40° F).
One of the most memorable meals one of our tasting panels and I have ever eaten in Spain was at Mont-Marçal, an experience we eagerly look forward to replicating on our next visit. All agreed that not only was the food incredible (the very best calamari, octopus, and an entire array of seafood delights any of us had ever eaten), the Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva was the perfect foil to our seafood spread. In addition to calamari, octopus, sea bass and other Mediterranean specialties, the 2014 Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva will provide an exceptional complement to all kinds of tapas, hors d’oeuvres, poultry and lightly smoked meats and cheeses. Salmon mousse, sautéed scallops, stuffed mushrooms, sautéed oysters, prosciutto, Jamon Iberico, and even foie gras, offer especially rewarding accompaniments to Mont-Marçal’s Brut Reserva, too. Steamed crab legs and herb-roasted chicken or turkey served with a savory stuffing offer other worthy accompaniments to Mont-Marçal’s elegant Cava. A plate of fresh fruit and soft, ripe, creamy cheeses will also complement the fresh, highly delineated flavors of Mont-Marçal’s Cava. Like most Brut sparkling wines, Mont-Marçal’s 2014 Brut Reserva is at its very best early in the evening, either as an aperitif or with a first or main course of a meal. The dry, delicate flavors of Cava are best enjoyed before dessert and the onset of palate fatigue. Enjoy!
