Gran Codorniu Pinot Noir
  • The Pinot Noir grapes are harvested from our own vineyards.

    Codorníu boasts the oldest and largest expanses in the whole of Spain of vineyards of this varietal, which it has grown for 25 years now. This varietal is difficult lo cultivate because it is very delicate. It demands care and attention throughout the entire cycle making sure that the grapes are not subjected lo water stress or over-exposure lo the sun, as well as specific pruning, vine training and vine plot management techniques. That's why Codorníu chose an ideal zone for growing the varietal, Conca de Barberà, where the continental climate favours optimum berry concentration, yielding grapes with more body and a greater intensity of aromas. The soils are gravelly, and this prevents excessive vigour in the vine stock and contributes mineral notes. Cultivation methods follow integrated production criteria and are especially adapted lo making sparkling wines.

  • Creamy, delicate with a long finish.

    An intense straw yellow colour with very lively golden highlights and purplish hues typical of the Pinot Noir varietal. A fine delicate well integrated mousse with perfect effervescence forming a uniform and persistent crown. An exquisite bouquet of white flowers on the nose with fruity notes such as raspberry, redcurrant and strawberry, the most emblematic nuances of Pinot Noir. These aromas re-emerge on the palate, with a full bodied mouthfeel exhibiting notable freshness.
