Straw-colored with greenish tints, and with a steady effervescence and a formation of small bubbles which generate a gentle crown.
Subtle and delicate, floral, with light toasty notes and recall of dry fruits. Touch of dried herbs. It is appetising, fruity, well structured,
rich and mature in the mouth. A slightly toasted background flavor with pleasant traces of lees. Altogether elegant. Lingering and strong.
Grape Varieties: 45% Macabeo, 40% Xarello and 15% Parellada
This is our favorite Cava, & one that we have been enjoying steadily since the 1970's. We buy it by the case so as to always have some on hand. Great summer or winter, everyday or for special occasions - a nice versatile bubbly with just the right amount of dryness. A must with steamed shellfish.
We drank one bottle new year's eve and it reminded me all over again why I love blanc de blanc's! fresh, crisp, delightful!
Perfect for Kir Royale, Mimosa, or Ernest Hemingway; not straight up
needs more dryness and structure - too swaet for me
