Shanken News Daily announced the new exclusive partnership between VINTUS and Spain’s Juvé & Camps in Thursday’s news briefs email.
The write up offers background on the estate and its objective to increase its presence in the US. “Juvé & Camps is known for Gran Reserva Cava, of which it claims a 36% global share and a 64% share within the U.S. Juvé & Camps farms its 700 acres under a certified organic regime, hand harvests all grapes, and goes well beyond the 30 months of minimum aging required by the Gran Reserva category, Vintus notes. Juvé & Camps CEO Meritxell Juvé said the company sees “huge potential for further growth in the U.S.” for its wines, which include the flagship Reserva de la Familia, as well as a Brut Rosé and top-end Gran Juvé, which is aged for 42 months.”
Juvé & Camps
Originally developed for the United States and now as popular as Reserva de la Familia, Juvé & Camps’ flagship rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir. Following the “Méthode Traditionnelle”, it is aged for 15 months in the bottle. Categorized as ‘Brut’ with only 5g/l of dosage, it is intense, fresh and exuberant with aromas of bright red fruits.
Juvé & Camps
Since it was first made in 1972, Gran Juvé has always been an emblematic cuvée, representing the best of Juvé & Camps. Categorized as ‘Brut’ with only 5g/l of dosage, it is only produced in exceptional vintages and is made using the best quality grapes from select vineyard plots. With a very long ageing time in the bottle of about 42 months, it showcases the intensity and complexity that Spanish sparkling wines can achieve.
Juvé & Camps
“Reserva de la Familia” (translating to ‘Reserve of the Family’) is one of the world’s greatest sparkling wines, 100% estate, certified organic, always vintage-dated, and all the more notable because of the quality needed to produce it without dosage.
Juvé & Camps is an indisputable worldwide leader of Spanish premium sparkling wines. This family-owned, 100% estate-based producer is revered in Spain for its painstaking focus on quality and sustainability, and its important role within the country’s conversation on fine wine in general. A winegrowing family for over 200 years, in 1921 Juvé started producing the first sparkling wines under their name. They have been pioneers in the viticulture and production of sparkling wines since then. If you have visited Spain, you have seen with your own eyes the prevalence of Juvé & Camps. It is not an exaggeration to call it a national institution.
