 Overview of the Wine
The Llopart family has been growing grapes since 1385, proven by a document written in Latin that is kept in the family’s archive proving a transfer of land to Bernardus Leopardi, one of the family’s ancestors, located on the winery’s present estate, known as Can Llopart de Subirats. Over the following centuries, the family dedicated themselves to the cultivation of grapevines, wheat, and olive trees, until the late 1800’s when they committed themselves wholly to grape growing. After years of tests, the family finally released their first Cava, produced in the estate’s old masia, or country house, in 1887.

In the 1950’s the family status as a premier cava producer was solidified, when Pere Llopart i Vilarós revolutionized the operation and consolidated the production of small quantity, high quality sparkling wine, produced in the methode champenoise style.

Llopart is famous for the quality of their unique, low production sparkling wines, which express the terroir of their unique location. Their estate sits on a limestone mantle with a surface soil that is a mixture of clay and siliceous components. The vineyards are cared for with the most traditional organic methods possible. Llopart is one of the most unique, traditional, and authentic sparkling wine producers in the world.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Very bright cherry-pink color. Well-developed bubbles, constant and small in size. Fruity exuberant aroma dominated by a variety of forest fruits along with delicate tannins. An initially potent flavor with good structure and just the right degree of acidity that maintains a perfect balance throughout its prolonged lingering aftertaste.

#51 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019
This Llopart Reserva Brut Rose Cava is the perfect bubbly for any gathering. Just imagine the 1,000's of wines it had to beat out get on that list... We recommend pouring it with salmon tartar, simply roasted chicken and shallots, panna cotta with raspberry coulis, and much more. How are you saying Cheers wine lovers?

91 Points - Wine Spectator
The flavors of nectarine and white cherry are fresh and pure in this elegant sparkling rosé, with pretty accents of ground ginger, chalk and pink grapefruit sorbet riding the fine bead and lingering on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2022.

90 Points - James Suckling
Attractive candied watermelons, white rose petals and cinnamon bun. Medium-bodied with medium-fine bubbles and pretty acidity to keep the palate fresh and mouthwatering. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
