DEVELOPMENT (VINIFICATION)

We plan the optimum moment for harvest for each variety used in Anna of Codorníu Love. After de-stemming and pressing of the grapes, we obtain the musts. We add selected yeast and the must ferments at a temperature of between 15 C and 17 ºC. Once you have completed all the fermentation and stabilized the wine, is performed the assembly of the same and then bottled the resulting wine along with liquor circulation. The bottles pass to the underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17 ºC) where takes place the second fermentation followed by a period of ageing in contact with lees of yeast. En total, the wine will spend a minimum of 12 months in the cellar, after which takes place the removed (decanting of the bottles to facilitate agglutination and subsequent elimination of sediment) and the disgorgement, time to remove the sediments deposited after the second fermentation.

The grapes used for the production of Anna de Codorníu Love come from two wine-making areas distinct. The variety Chardonnay comes from vineyards located in the region of more continental climate of the D. Or.

Cropping systems follow the criteria of integrated production and are particularly adapted to the production of sparkling wine. The harvest takes place towards mid-August and is always carried out during the night, in order to keep the grapes as cool as possible and keep their aromas intact and prevent oxidation processes or spontaneous fermentations.

The cava of Codorníu was born in the vineyards of the property. From many years ago, in Codorníu we apply them the techniques of viticulture sustainable, namely, we let nature take its course and only intervene when there are mismatches. Each grape variety is different and requires a climate and a soil special.

Codorníu is the only producer of champagne which uses grapes from vineyards of three climatic zones are very different within the D. O. Quarry. It is a trait of exceptional that allows us to plant each variety in the area where it is able to display all of its expressiveness and, at the same time, provides Codorníu as a potential unmatched to be able to create different styles and types of champagne.

These three climatic zones are:
• The Penedès, soil type clayey-calcareous and mediterranean climate, where the grapes of traditional varieties, Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada expressing all of your unique and original.
Conca de Barberà, a zone with moderate continental climate ideal for the cultivation of the Pinot Noir variety, from which we get grapes with a mineral touch thanks to the slate floors.
Costers del Segre, the most continental of the Catalonia interior, where the great thermal amplitude between day and night produces grapes with a high aromatic concentration and flavors, and a vibrant freshness ideal for the varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The development process is key for the elaboration of cava, called traditional method or champenoise. We characterized a unique style for our cavas by combining grapes from local and international cellars elegant, very expressive, fresh and aromatic, respecting the character of the grape variety and the terroir.
