Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's critic for Spain, writes:
"I was really blown away by the 2008 Reserva Particular, without a doubt one of the finest vintages for this bottling. It combines incredible aromas (truffle, white flowers, bakery, flour, royal jelly, brioche) with great freshness and an explosive palate that has pungent flavors and intense minerality and is light but with great density and a super long finish. The wine matured for over ten years with the lees in the bottle yet is fresh and feels very young. Astonishingly good! The bottle I tasted was disgorged for me, as the wine is still aging and will come into the market at the end of 2019 or early 2020. There are some 5,000 bottles of this elixir.
Recaredo has also left the Cava appellation along with the rest of the Corpinnat group. They are working to produce wines with the second fermentation in bottle without adding cane sugar, using must from their own vines and with indigenous yeasts."
