Mestres Coquet Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2017
Mestres Coquet es uno de los cavas más desenfadados y originales de la bodega. Se trata de un gran espumoso que marida en cualquier momento de la comida. Procede de viñas propias y controladas que en algunos casos superan el medio siglo de edad. La elaboración es tradicional, y su paso por boca es fresco y equilibrado, aportando en nariz notas de fruta blanca, flores y frutas cítricas.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2017 Coquet Gran Reserva Brut Nature was released with no less than 48 months in bottle with lees, but all bottles have the disgorgement date on the back label and the last bottles can have up to 54 months. 2017 was a dry vintage (the last of three: 2015, 2016, 2017), and the wine reflects it, within their levels of freshness, with 12% alcohol, a pH of 3.1 and 5.65 grams of acidity. They look for a house style, a structure and small bubbles, and this entry-level bottling is more complex and older than the great majority of Cava wines. This is their only wine that does not spend time in barrel, but the wine in bottle is aged under cork, which makes a difference when you are talking about long aging in bottle; it might not be worth it for a short élevage, but it does for a long one. The disgorgement of the bottles is all by hand and without freezing the lees. This is a superb entry-level wine that is also released in magnum (the current vintage for the magnums is 2016). It's clean and intense, with very small bubbles, pungent flavors, dry, serious and elegant. 50,354 bottles produced. The bottle I tasted was disgorged in April 2022. - Luis Gutiérrez.
