· “It is elegant, direct and with a fresh and long acidity, which makes this ageworthy wine great” – Raúl Serrano

We are thrilled to share some exciting news: Alta Alella 10 2012, the collectible cava made by the Pujol-Busquets Family, has received the “Magnificent Best Sparkling Wine” award from Vivir el Vino 2024 Wine Guide. A recognition that demonstrates Alta Alella’s commitment to producing high-quality cavas.

Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets, owner and founder of Alta Alella, has received the award during the celebration of Vivir el Vino Guide event, held on January 29th at the Cofidís Alcázar Theater in Madrid.

Alta Alella 10 is the result of many years producing high-quality cavas that aim to represent their origin landscape, influenced by the Mediterranean (vineyards located less than 2 km from the sea) and vines that are grown on Sauló (sandy soil of decomposing granite). These are distinctive characteristics of the Serra de Mar territory (Barcelona), which give the grapes an extraordinary natural acidity suitable to produce age-worthy cavas. This one in particular is patiently aged on the lees for at least 10 years.

“(…) A sparkling wine that maintains the expression of its fruit, from the first hit the freshness invades you and maintains the great complexity all along. It is elegant, direct and with a fresh and long acidity, which makes this ageworthy wine great”, describes Raúl Serrano, director of the media and sommelier with more than 30 years of experience in the wine industry. With a score of 99 points out of 100, Alta Alella 10 is the best cava listed by the guide.

Three more cavas from the winery have obtained great ratings from Guía Vivir el Vino 2024: Alta Alella Mirgin Opus Paraje Calificado Vallcirera 2019 with 96 points, Alta Alella Laietà 2019 with 94 points, and Alta Alella Mirgin 2019with 92 points.

Vivir el vino is one of the most popular wine magazines in Spain and it publishes the annual Vivir el Vino Guide, which brings together the best wines that can be found on the market that year. Raúl Serrano selects the 365 wines that conform the list, a different wine for each day of the year. Among all of them, they also highlight the “11 Magnificent” awards, which determine the best wine in each category. A blind tasting in which Serrano and the tasting panel choose “the best of the best”, in which Alta Alella 10 2012 has been designated Best Sparkling Wine.
