A burst of holiday coverage for Juvé & Camps Sparkling wines! Somm TV notes that Juvé & Camps is one of the only producer making a single-varietal Xarel-lo Cava. The publication says “At Juvé & Camps, the Finca d’Espiells soils are low in organic matter, and the climate is warm and dry. These factors are crucial for growing Xarel-lo which, despite its strength, is a very sensitive grape that performs much better in low yields.
Decanter celebrates 100 years of production at Juvé y Camps, and mentioned that the estate is at the forefront of its category, and all Spanish wines. “While celebrating 100 years of experience and commitment, Juvé & Camps looks at the future with an eye on the past, bridging tradition and innovation.”
Sevenfifty Daily says that vintage is becoming more important in Cava production. Climate change is looming for vintage quality, and the winemakers will adapt accordingly. “For Meritxell Juvé, the CEO of Juvé & Camps and a fourth-generation family member, working organically has become much more challenging in light of these climate-included changes. “In some years, when we had a strong impact of mildew in the vineyard, working organically was a clear handicap. In fact, [we saw] a reduction of our yield by about 50 to 60 percent, while nonorganic producers had only a 25 to 30 percent reduction. It really makes it more difficult.”

“Reserva de la Familia” (translating to ‘Reserve of the Family’) is one of the world’s greatest sparkling wines, 100% estate, certified organic, always vintage-dated, and all the more notable because of the quality needed to produce it without dosage.

Since it was first made in 1972, Gran Juvé has always been an emblematic cuvée, representing the best of Juvé & Camps. Categorized as ‘Brut’ with only 5g/l of dosage, it is only produced in exceptional vintages and is made using the best quality grapes from select vineyard plots. With a very long ageing time in the bottle of about 42 months, it showcases the intensity and complexity that Spanish sparkling wines can achieve.
Juvé & Camps is an indisputable worldwide leader of Spanish premium sparkling wines. This family-owned, 100% estate-based producer is revered in Spain for its painstaking focus on quality and sustainability, and its important role within the country’s conversation on fine wine in general. A winegrowing family for over 200 years, in 1921 Juvé started producing the first sparkling wines under their name. They have been pioneers in the viticulture and production of sparkling wines since then. If you have visited Spain, you have seen with your own eyes the prevalence of Juvé & Camps. It is not an exaggeration to call it a national institution.
