90 Wine Enthusiast With persistent bubbles in the glass and aromas of green pear, hazelnut and almond blossom, this sparkling wine has flavors of Granny Smith apple, baking bread, toasted nuts and jasmine. Bold acidity washes over the side palate and holds on into the finish.

90 View from the Cellar The Biutiful Cava Brut Nature is made from the same cépages as the Brut and aged for the same twelve months sur latte, but is finished without dosage once it is disgorged. The wine seems a touch more precise on both the nose and palate without the dosage, offering up a refined bouquet of lemon, tart pear, salty minerality, dried flowers, gentle smokiness and a topnote of lemongrass. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused, zesty and complex, with an elegant profile, good depth at the core, lovely mineral undertow, refined mousse and a long, impeccably balanced finish. This is an outstanding value! 2023-2035+.
Issue #103 - January/February 2023.
90 Vinous Media Translucent yellow-gold. Lemon zest, quinine and ginger on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Sharply focused and dry, showing firm cut to Meyer lemon and green apple flavors, which deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes long and energetic, leaving subtle herb and floral notes behind. This wine, which has less than a gram of residual sugar, is from lot #9127110. 2021- 2024

89 View from the Cellar The Biutiful Cava Brut Nature is made from the same cépages as the Brut and aged for the same twelve months sur latte, but is finished without dosage once it is disgorged. The bouquet is bright and nicely precise, wafting from the glass in a mix of tart orange, breadfruit, dried flowers, a touch of menthol and a lovely base of salty minerality. On the palate the wine is zesty, full- bodied, focused and complex, with a good core, frothy mousse and a long, nicely soil-driven finish. This is also quite a nice bottle for the pricetag. 2024-2030.

*** The Washington Post I’ve raved about Biutiful cavas before, and this Brut Nature may be my favorite yet. It’s a blend of 80 percent macabeo, a traditional cava grape, and chardonnay, the premier white grape of champagne, made in the traditional style with the second fermentation in the bottle, and disgorged with no added dosage of sugar (the “Brut Nature” designation). Bone dry, intensely focused and complex, it welcomed me with flavors of strawberry and tart raspberry. As it warmed in my glass, I noticed apricot and a mineral oil note. The bubbles in my glass were as persistent as the flavors on my palate. Top-notch bargain fizz. ABV: 11.5 percent. BW: 860 grams (Sparkling).
