General information

An exceptional artisanal sparkling wine. Reserve yours now!

Bodegas Parxet’s origins date back to 1920, when its first bottles of cava came onto the market. They were made using the méthode champenoise in Mas Parxet, an area which had been producing wines since the eighteenth century.

The winery’s name is derived from the French word parchet meaning ‘small vineyard plot’ and is highly appropriate as the vineyards are generally smallholdings.

This prestigious firm makes cava in Alella, a unique winegrowing area located by the sea near Barcelona whose sandy sauló soil is home to the characteristic Pansa Blanca grape variety. They employ the traditional method for producing sparkling wine, which starts with carefully selecting the vineyards, and attach priority to respecting the natural product.

Ramón Raventós Reserva Dissident Brut 2015 is one of the firm’s great wines. This very special, highly elegant cava is made from a coupage of two red (Xarel·lo Rojo and Pinot Noir) and three white grape varieties (Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay). It is the result of one of the most personal and revolutionary winegrowing projects carried out in Catalonia in recent years, which involves recovering age-old vineyards and using artisanal methods to produce exquisite blancs de noirs.

Enjoy at home an outstanding cava, a surprising sparkling wine with the hallmark features of a brand with a long winemaking tradition.

Tasting Notes

Profile sheet Ramón Raventós Reserva Dissident Brut 2015

Attractive pale-yellow colour with golden highlights, luminous and very bright.

Fresh, floral nose with hints of pome fruits (green apple) followed by subtle bakery notes and nutty undertones.

Light and tasty attack with a pleasantly refreshing mid-palate thanks to the gentle release of carbonic gas, which is perfectly integrated into the overall flavour. The aromas found in the nose carry through to a long finish.
