Refined, dry method traditional with a beautiful mousse. Developed taste with a complex aroma, light toast and a beautiful aftertaste. During the 2nd fermentation, corks are used for the higher cuvées instead of crown caps. For the III Lustros, these expensive corks with three layers are used, so that the wine can age well and develop a beautiful, refined mousse. The disgorgement of the wines must therefore be done by hand, which is a highly skilled job. Cava may be called Gran Reserva if the wine has been "sur latte" for at least 60 months. III Lustros is a Vintage Cava and is marketed on average after about 7-9 years. The III Lustros Cuvée is a Brut Nature, which means that there is no dosage. The xarel.lo grape makes it possible for this Cava to grow so old. The wine is aged in the bottle for a long time, so that a beautiful mousse can develop. The residual sugar content is 3 grams/litre. Gramona belongs to the absolute top among the Cavas and this is also confirmed by international wine critics.

In the past, the wine was allowed to mature 'sur lattes' for 15 years. From this comes the name III Lustros. This is the tightest version of the Gramona cava range.

Vineyard for 2013 Gramona Corpinnat  III Lustros Brut Nature Gran Reserva

The very dynamic family business Gramona has existed since 1881, currently the 5th generation of mainly 150 ha own vineyards makes formidable sparkling wines. Traditional, but using modern technology. Since the opening of the new Bodega in 2006 just outside the village, Gramona is also technically completely ready for the coming years. In a Research and Development program, research is conducted at a very high level into climate change, ecological viticulture, sustainability and everything related to the formation and preservation of the mousse. The oenologist Jaume Gramona, who runs the company with his cousin Xavier, teaches at the University of Tarragona. Gramona has a low yield per hectare for Cava producers. In the summer, a green harvest is done, with an excess of bunches being cut away. The company makes its own yeasts and liqueur d'expédition in a more than a hundred years old solera system. Gramona's stock is about 1.5 million bottles. The Cava market is dominated by large houses with huge volumes. Top companies like Gramona have a completely different philosophy and work exclusively on quality. Currently, they have three locations in Sant Sadurni for the production of their wines.

Gramona is, first and foremost, always concerned with maximum quality in the wines and champagnes. This aim is reflected in every moment and in every step of the process (pruning, harvesting, production, selection). This ethos is conveyed in the coat of arms: "Viti, Vini, Vitae": the vine, wine, life, a synthesis of our history. As a company with a long tradition , respect for the area and nature is of paramount importance. At Gramona they use the exceptional terroir and the experience in the traditional production ("Champenois") to produce high-quality and, above all, very elegant Cavas.
