Mont Marçal Cava Extremarium Brut NV
The wine is bright pale yellow with fine and continuous bubbles and a perfect mousse. It expresses clean and fresh peach and grapefruit aromas, along with toasted coffee, coconut, vanilla mineral tones, and white flower notes. On the palate, it is fresh, fruity, creamy, and light with good body from its contact with the yeasts and hints of raw almonds and hazelnuts. This is a Cava that can accompany aperitifs, as well as a wide variety of dishes such as fish and seafood, light meat dishes, pastas and rice, salads, smoked fish and meats, and charcuterie. The recommended serving temperature is 6ºC. It should be consumed within 20 months of purchase.
Food Pairings for Mont Marçal Cava Extremarium Brut
A very robust version of yeast-influenced Cava, Extremarium’s nose of toast, brioche, pastry shells, and rising bread dough is as dramatically yeasty as any Cava you will find. The mouth is round with yellow apples, oranges, pears, and some other citrus notes. The middle sees more apple than pear and citrus while the finish goes the other way with long, pear notes and marzipan pastries.
