TASTING NOTES

Traditional method sparkler from Trepat, Pinot Noir & Garnacha. In the glass, it is a delicate blush color with a subtle nose of strawberries, peach skin, and watermelon rind. In the mouth, the fruit is luscious with gracefully textured bubbles on the dry finish and an echo of red fruit.

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2017) - "Grand Gold Medal"

Grande M´daille d'Or
Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2019, May 2, 2019

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2016) - "Pale, brilliant orange. Ripe red fruits and succulent herb aromas show good energy and a hint of white pepper. Smooth and weighty on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Delivers solid, fruity punch on the supple finish, which hangs on with good, gently spicy tenacity."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2013) - "Mont Marçal has always been a strong contender, and this year’s Cava Rosado is no wimp. The ruby-like darker hue, shines in the glass. At first glance you think you are going to get whopped with flavors, but in the Mont Marçal fashion the flavors are well tamed. From the nose to palate flavors of candied tangerine and ginger are present. These flavors coexist with notes of nutmeg, cherries, and hints of acai. The medium bubbles help tame and spread the flavors throughout your palate."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2013) - "Deep, bright-hued pink. On the nose, powerful raspberry, cherry and rose oil aromas are lifted by subtle white pepper notes. Supple and broad on entry, tighter in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and berry skin flavors that spread out nicely on the back half. Finishes with good intensity, lingering spice and a refreshingly bitter quality."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2013) - "Rusty in color, with soft aromas of cherry and plum, this rosé of Trepat feels fleshy and round, with modest acidity. Briny citrus and charred cherry notes unfold on the finish."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2012) - "Modest plum and cherry aromas come with a touch of yeast and bread. This is crisp on the palate, and perfectly clean. Toasty influences can be found on raspberry and red-plum flavors, while this is direct, fresh and easy on the finish."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2011) - "A meaty rosé for charcuterie, this wine will brighten chorizo with its scents of cranberry, Red Delicious apple and rose. It balances the pleasant bitterness of lees with the sweetness of the fruit in a mouthwatering finish."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2009) - "This gets going with clean, light cherry and berry aromas that bring a citrus note to the fore. It feels crisp, dry and pure, with citrus, plum and dust flavors. An elegant rosé made from the Trepat grape, it finishes dry and spicy, with ample leftover fruit."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2009) - "The medium pink 2009 Brut Rosado is made from 100% Trepat. Earthy minerals, strawberry, and cherry blossom aromas inform the nose of this savory Cava which lingers nicely on the palate. It is an excellent value for drinking over the next 12-18 months."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2008) - "(100% trepat):  Dark pink.  Raspberry and cherry on the fruit-driven nose and palate.  A juicy, pliant midweight that picks up notes of bitter herbs and licorice with air.  Shows a bit of heat on the back end but there's also good precision and finishing bite."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2008) - "A subtle wine made entirely from Trepat. Aromas of strawberry and toast are mixed well, while the palate is juicy, crisp and correct, with raspberry and plum flavors along with a dose of dry spice. Light, toasty and perfectly dry on the back end. "

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2008) - "The 2008 Brut Rosado is medium pink-colored with aromas of cherry blossom, strawberry, and rhubarb. Dry and flavorful on the palate, it will make a fine match with jamon Iberico."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2005) - "Light pink. Nervy red currant and blood orange aromas are complicated by honeysuckle and dried rose, with a sexy underpinning of dusty minerals. Juicy red berry flavors are brightened by citrus pith and gain flesh with air. Bitter cherry and raspberry flavors linger on a long, seamless finish. This would kick plenty of pink Champagne around the block-at a fraction of the price."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado (2005) - "Very soft nose with touches of lemon, red apple, orange, and yeast; notes of red apple, raisin, and peach skin in the clean friendly finish. An easy-drinking aperitif."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado - "Dark strawberry-cherry hue; a true rosado with a very fine, active bead. Yeast, clove, strawberry-cherry nose. Very nice with some candied berry fruit flavors; lively and very well-balanced without an overly frothy mouth-feel."

Mont Marçal Cava Brut Rosado - "This vintage-dated wine had the elegance of Champagne, with exceptional focus and precision. Fruit flavors of cherry and pomegranate contributed to a sleek, racy, polished wine perfectly suited to the appetizers."

MONT MARçAL VINíCOLA WINERY INFO

Overview: The winery Mont Marçal Vinícola was founded in 1975 by Manuel Sancho who, after many years of dedication to the world of the music, directed his activity towards a new art; the world of wine and cava. Since 2015, under new ownership, the philosophy of the winery and the dedication to producing quality wines under the Denominations of Origén Penedès, Catalunya, and Cava continue. The winery, originally a 14th century farmhouse and then a 19th century convent, is now a state-of-the-art winemaking facility.

Back to top

History: Manuel Sancho's 230-acre estate, "Finca Manlleu," is located on a prominent chalky knoll five miles south of Vilafranca del Penedès overlooking the hamlet of Sant Marçal. One hundred acres are planted to Parellada, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay for white wines; Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for reds. The "Mont" provides 360-degree exposure, creating a wide variety of microclimates for maturation of the various varieties.

In 1975, Manuel Sancho purchased a neglected 19th-century convent, originally a 14th-century farmhouse, converting it to a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and initiating the restructuring of the vineyards. Recent excavation has expanded the CAVA aging and bottling capacity, at the same time revealing medieval underground passageways in the chalk which have been carefully preserved for additional bottle storage.

Intrinsic vineyard quality and careful handling of the grapes obtain a naturally-rich base wine in little need of dosage. Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva is produced from the indigenous white grapes, Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay and Xarel-lo, aged at least 24 months with the yeast, and disgorged on order for shipment.
