Mestres 2013 Visol Gran Reserva Brut Nature [6/750]
In 1945, Visol was the first Cava ever sold without the addition of dosage after disgorgement. The tradition continues successfully, as old vines, a fermentation and initial passage in traditional chestnut barriques and five years on the lees combine to produce a uniquely savory and long-flavoured wine.
