The Mestres Coquet has a straw yellow color with greenish reflections with a beautiful perlage. Very refined and nicely integrated bubbles. This Mestres Coquet is a very elegant cava with aromatic richness. In the nose notes of white fruit, apple, citrus and orange peel. On the palate, the freshness of the fruit is noted, accompanied by the notes of aging and maturity. It is a cava that fits easily at any time of the meal. The Coquet is a blend of Macabeu (30%) Xarel lo (45%) Parellada (25%) coming from a vineyard over 50 years old. The Mestres Coquet Gran Reserva Brut Nature is, as a Brut Nature should be, very dry with less than 1.5 grams of residual sugar. Mestres is known for its long aging and the Coquet is also a Gran Reserva with over 42 months of aging

In the Penedes report of the Wine Advocate of the end of September 2022 , LUIS GUTIÉRREZ writes:" ....To me, Mestres is the top quality producer in Cava, and they are somehow specializing in long aging and larger format bottles (magnums and larger) To me, they are the best Cava producer today, with a great balance between acidity, oxidation and bubbles"
91+/100 Parker with a price indication of only $80!! and ends his review with: .....I like this very much"

100% of the sparkling wines from Mestres are aged in the bottle under cork, so 2 natural corks are used for aging. Mestres is a very traditional Cava producer and is compared in style to the "López de Heredia & Tondonia" among the Cavas. This is a so-called Vintage Cava, which means that it is produced from 1 single year and therefore only in the good years.

FACT: Mestres has always printed the date of disgorgement on the label and Metres is one of the few houses that opts for traditional aging method and is the godfather in "Long Aged Cava". Under the tab Attachment you can find an article by Jancis Robinson with a hymn to these great cavas which have a level that most top champagne houses can't match.


The MESTRES family has been documented in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia since 1312 as owners of vineyards and also as traders of grains and wines. The family has been associated with the wine world for 29 generations. At the time, the date of 1312 was taken as the year of the creation of the MESTRES vineyards.

During the Christmas of 1928, the first bottle of Cava MESTRES was released, which Josep Mestres Manobens produced with grapes from the 1925 vintage. From this date, the family specialized in the production of sparkling wines with a very long maturation made according to the champagne way, namely the traditional method. From that moment on they only focused on high quality and MESTRES grew into a reference and benchmark for top cavas. Josep Mestres Manobens is the one who started with a high-quality base wine to make a Cava by means of a 'champagne' (method 'champenoise') without adding a sugar liquid (this is used for the extra fermentation by most houses), which he called "Visol" ((WINE ON IT'S OWN). At Mestres they only work with wine and no additives. This is how the first Brut Nature was born and is registered in the Patent and Trademark office since 1948. Mestres are thus the Parents of Brut Nature Today, the 29th generation of the MESTRES family follows the path of their predecessors and maintains that restless and enterprising spirit that characterized the MESTRES family, a winery with seven centuries of history.
