Calmly. During fermentation that starts spontaneously and aging in 1000 liter argile amphoras and oak barrels.
Castell d'Age Cavas
Our cavas are produced from a selection of the best grapes from our estates. And with yet more patience.
Following the traditional Champenoise method. Attending to every detail. Such as the most suitable time for harvesting. The exact coupage (blending) of the different varieties. The first fermentation at low temperature. The second, slow fermentation in bottle. Turning each bottle by hand, every day, exactly one eighth of a turn.
Enveloped in the silence and semi-darkness of our subterranean cellars. For a minimum of 15 months. For a maximum of...
We have all the time in the world.
