The prestigious sommelier Ferran Centelles has tasted and valued great Cavas from the Freixenet Group for Jancis Robinson, one of the main wine prescribers worldwide. The Freixenet Group Cavas tasted were Freixenet Trepat 2017 and Segura Viudas Torre Galimany 2014, as well as Can Sala 2007, “Cava de Paraje Cualificado” produced by Vins Familia Ferrer and distributed in some countries by the Freixenet Group. These renowned Cavas have obtained good ratings from Centelles, as it has been reflected in his article published on the Jancis Robinson website. In this exclusive unprecedented tasting, 40 other long-aged Cavas have also participated, selected, and also tasted, by the specialized journalist Ramon Francàs.

Centelles defines Freixenet Trepat Brut 2017 as a Cava with notes of evolution, delicate, fine with integrated bubbles, al dente acidity and a hint of rusticity with a trace of bitterness on the palate. He continues with his words towards Segura Viudas Torre Galimany Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2014 which he describes as fresh on the palate with a smoky and toasted profile, with a pleasantly complex and crunchy texture, vibrant acidity and long finish. Finally, Centelles highlights of Can Sala Brut Nature 2007 its fully integrated and honeyed texture. He defines it as broad, extremely pleasant and powerful, as well as very complex and well done considering that its minimum aging period is 129 months.
