|89||View from the Cellar||The Biutiful Cava Brut is crafted from a blend of fifty percent Macabeu, thirty-five percent Parellada and fifty percent Xarel-lo. The grapes are harvested at night to preserve acidity and the wine is aged for twelve months on its fine lees prior to disgorgement and a finishing dosage of eight grams per liter. It offers up a lovely nose of lime, sea salts, stony minerality, menthol, wild fennel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with pinpoint bubbles, bright acids and lovely focus and mineral drive on the long and complex finish. This is very good Cava and an excellent value! 2023-2033.
