Alta Alella Mirgin Exeo Evolució+ 2004 selected by the best sommeliers in the world 


We are delighted to reveal that Alta Alella Mirgin Exeo Evolució+ 2004 is part of the exclusive World’s Best Sommeliers’ Selection

On January 16th, thirty of the world’s most distinguished sommeliers traveled from all corners of the globe to the United Kingdom to participate in the premiere of the World’s Best Sommeliers’ Selection, an exclusive tasting by William Reed (The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and World’s Best Vineyards). Sommeliers from 50 best restaurants such as  Diego Vásquez Luque (Central y Kjolle), Rodrigo Briseño (Disfrutar), Miguel Ángel Millán (DiverXO), Mohamed Benabdallah (Asador Etxebarri), Nina Hojgaard Jensen (Alchemist), Jhonel Faelnar (Atomix), Rubén Elias Velazquez (Quintonil), Agnese Morandi (Table by Bruno Verjus), Milan Rukavina (Gaggan Anand) and Kristell Monot (Mugaritz), amongst others.

From Alta Alella, we had the great opportunity to present the collectible cava from the Pujol-Busquets Family ‘Alta Alella Mirgin Exeo Evolució+ 2004’, which has been included in the final selection. “Delicate aromatic nose dominated by ripe lemon zest, dried orange, dried apple and cinnamon spice. Toasted bread and almonds are found in the background. The palate is dynamic with fine, persistent bubbles and a salty touch, with mild acidity. Ripe yellow peaches, candied lemon, dried fruits and a finish with a quality bitter touch”, highlighted the sommeliers.

Alta Alella Mirgin Exeo Evolució+ is an organic and vintage cava, with 18 years of patient ageing on lees, made with a selection of the best grapes from Paraje Vallcirera: Pansa Blanca and Chardonnay. This is the first vineyard planted by the family when they settled in Can Genís in 1991. The vines grow in Sauló (sandy granitic soil) and less than 2km from the Mediterranean sea, conditions that give the grapes a natural acidity that is essential to make age-worthy cavas.

Food pairing recommendations

The professionals that tasted Alta Alella Mirgin Exeo Evolució+ 2004 find it wonderful to be paired with “creamy foods and also pickled flavours that would reflect the secondary fermentation notes”. They suggest, for example, “fresh kumamoto oysters with a mignonette or a fried mushroom pastry with truffle cream”, or enjoying it “as a refreshing beverage after the first course”.

Being part of this privileged list is a reward to many years of work aiming to produce great wines, and confirms the aging potential of Pansa Blanca and its ability to captivate the most exquisite palates.
