Alta Alella 10 Gran Reserva: the elegant passage of time

2022.03.10

A cava with great ageing capacity and a « grand vin » philosophy from the Pujol-Busquets family

After a decade’s wait, Alta Alella 10, a collectible cava made with a « Grand Vin » philosophy and great ageing capacity, was released in the market at the end of 2020. It is a 2010 vintage Gran Reserva Brut Nature, organic certified and fermented in barrel. This singular and long aged sparkling wine is the result of combining: Sauló soil from Can Genís Estate –a sandy granitic soil–, the exceptional and unique climate characteristics from Serra de Mar area, and many years of experience making high quality cavas.

The pandemic circumstances made it impossible for us to organize two consecutive press presentations: in October 2021 we held a tasting for the media in Barcelona, and in March 2022 we were finally able to bring together the press in Madrid. In both editions, the journalists experienced a journey through time and sensations thanks to a unique vertical tasting.

We uncorked ten vintages of Alta Alella 10 that have not been released to the market yet, to observe the character of each harvest and the evolution of ageing characteristics. We tasted the vintages 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2018, 2017, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011, and finished the event enjoying the vintage 2010, currently available on the market.

The vertical tasting organized in Madrid took place in A’Barra Restraurant (* Michellin), and the one in Barcelona was held in Alta Alella.
