Details
Celler Batlle is one of the benchmark sparkling wines of Spain.  It is aged over 8 years before undergoing dosage with a solera wine that is well over 100 years old.  It's got wonderful richness and breadth, but is still precise, focused and very long.  Hard to beat.  And we have a limited amount of the 2007 at a superb price.

"The complex 2007 Celler Batlle Gran Reserva Brut is a blend of 75% Xarello and 25% Macabeo with 3.2 grams of sugar added after some ten years in bottle with the lees, during which time the aromas see a great development and the bubbles get very integrated in the wine. Celler Batlle has the same coupage as the III Lustros and Enoteca, and it used to be the one brand with longer aging, because they thought they couldn't go any further than ten years, until they started experimenting with even longer time sur lie and released the first Enoteca. This is just amazing - a white wine without any oak and kept only by the lees. It has great subtleness and elegance, complexity (nutty, yeasty, bready), nuance and balance with a touch from the old liqueur d'expedition, which provides a wider sensation rather than the verticality of other cuvees. The palate revealed terrific harmony, great freshness and small bubbles that provide a creamy texture and a long, tasty aftertaste with faint bitterness that would do very well with food. This has to be one of the best vintages of Celler Batlle. Only 2,900 bottles were produced in 2007." 95 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
