With the arrival of the summer solstice, one of the most important festivals in the calendar of a great variety of towns and cities spread throughout the Spanish geography takes place. The festival of San Juan -which begins with an infinity of popular dinners or private meetings between family and friends- is the festival of the cult of fire, fireworks and revelry. And on the table, as a star product, we find the coca de San Juan.
Such a memorable dessert should be crowned with sparkling wines from Juvé & Camps, a fact that will accentuate the celebratory atmosphere at the party on the shortest night of the year. Remember that each coca has a special and unique flavor, which must be properly paired to enhance and balance the flavors on the palate. From Juvé & Camps we offer you four unbeatable bets:
1 Fruit “coca” and Reserva de la Familia
The most traditional and iconic of all the cocas from San Juan, it has a very marked sweetness due to the frosted pieces and the sweetener that presides over it. To balance this sweetness, nothing better than the best-selling Gran Reserva Brut Nature cava on the planet, our Reserva de la Familia. The initial notes of ripe white fruit -which will later give rise to nuances of bread, toast and spices- are tremendously seductive. The final result is a fresh, vibrant sparkling wine with a long finish that always invites you to repeat it. This product is made mainly from the Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada varieties harvested on the Espiells, Can Massana and La Cuscona estates.
2 Cream “coca” and Essential Pinot Noir
The sweetest bet of all, only suitable for the most intrepid diners, those who, no matter what, never raise the white flag. It is the expected moment of the sweet tooth of the group. To combine this coca, the best option is a sparkling rosé. Essential Pinot Noir is a fresh proposal that seduces through its brilliant cherry red color and hypnotizing effervescence.
3 Chocolat “coca” and Milesimé Chardonnay
Let yourself be seduced by a Reserva Brut cava to accompany products with an intense flavor such as chocolate. Milesimé Chardonnay is the result of selecting the best Can Rius grapes, full and ripe berries, expressive and lively, with enough structure to make the wine grow during bottle aging and gain complexity and nuances during its peaceful rest in our cellars, which lasts up to 36 months.
4 “Coca de llardons” and Gran Juvé & Camps
To close this quadruple proposal, the most iconic sparkling wine from Juvé & Camps arrives: the Gran Juvé & Camps. Its unique golden color is linked to a penetrating, complex and at the same time fresh aroma, in which white flowers and fleshy fruits can be distinguished. The attention to detail, the delicacy in the mixture and the experience and talent of our master blender become relevant to achieve an endless set of aromas and flavors, a spherical and precise wine, where the fruit dances to the beat of the notes of bakery and brioche, very light touches of orange blossom and honey and a toasted nuance that rounds off the aromatic mosaic.
If you are an insatiable gourmet, apart from this poker of sparkling wines to combine with the best and most delicious cocas from San Juan, consult our extensive catalog at Juvé & Camps so that your next festival is truly unforgettable.
