Xarel·lo monovarietal from the Espiells estate. Beautiful golden colour and surprisingly deep, complex nose. Intense notes of stone fruit (peach, apricot, loquat, etc.) coexist with brioche and butter. As it opens up, it starts to develop a faint background of nuts and curry, as well as toasted notes, from the long ageing. It is creamy, well-structured and incredibly fresh on the palate. It has a persistent aftertaste of dried apricots, walnuts and fine pastries.
La Capella is at the highest part of the Espiells estate, two hundred metres above sea level. It is a unique vineyard, with stark landscape and a shallow soil bed. The magnificent conditions found in the Penedès region are perfect for growing xarel·lo grapes in Espiells. This yields grapes with loads of character and spirit, which is essential to this long-aged cava. The terroir reinforces the hallmarks of this cava: structure, complexity and freshness.
Wine critic, El País newspaper
The latest stroke of genius from Juvé & Camps, with small, persistent bubbles and a complex, elegant nose reminiscent of its long ageing, with notes of ripe fruit, flowers, grass, brioche and nuts. Full, creamy, intense and well-balanced.
Chef & Sommelier
Ovillo is the most personal project of Javier Muñoz-Calero, a restaurant where the chef turns all his professional and vital experience into an honest kitchen that recovers a classic and international recipe book with French, Swiss, Thai, Catalan, Basque, Galician, Murcian and Madrilean influences and a vocation of freedom and honesty in the kitchen.
La Capella is amazing and versatile in gastronomic terms: it can be paired with seafood and with traditional fish dishes as well as with top poultry recipes for meat stews; even veggie recipes!
