90 View from the Cellar The Cava “1+1=3” non-vintage Brut is made from a cépages of forty percent Macabeu, thirty percent Xarel-lo and thirty percent Parellada, with both the Macabeu and Parellada vines averaging more than fifty years of age and all of the grapes grown organically. The wine was aged for at least twelve months sur latte and finished with a dosage of 8.5 grams per liter after its disgorgement in July of 2022. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of lemon, tart pear, wild fennel, salty minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a good core, fine soil undertow, frothy mousse and a long, well-balanced and quite classy finish. This is a lovely bottle of Cava Brut. 2023-2035+.
Issue #103 - January/February 2023.
89 View from the Cellar The brand new release of Cava “1+1=3” non-vintage Brut is composed from a cépages of forty percent Xarel-lo, thirty-five percent Parellada and twenty-five percent Macabeo. The vines are farmed organically and, most importantly, the grapes are hand-harvested. The wine is from the base year of 2021 and was disgorged in May of 2023, after a bit more than a year and a half on the fine lees. The finishing dosage was 8.5 grams. The wine delivers an aromatic constellation of tart pear, lemon, wild fennel, salty minerality, raw almond and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, young and zesty, with a full-bodied format, frothy mousse, fine focus and balance and a long, complex finish. This is a very user-friendly bottle of Cava, but for those who drink top flight Spanish sparklers often, the dosage might still stick out a bit. Good juice. 2024- 2035.
