BARCINO BRUT CAVA (750ml)
 
Wine Advocate

"This sensational non-vintage Barcino Cava was made from a solera system where the dosage was started in the 1940s. A blend of 55% Xarello, 25% Macabeo and 20% Parellada, from vines planted in 1995, this crisp, delicious, dry sparkler spent 12 months on its lees. Attractive notes of honeyed brioche, poached pear and caramelized grapefruit jump from the glass of this zesty, light-bodied, exceptionally well-crafted, pure, fresh cava."

Wine Enthusiast

"The latest incarnation of this famous Champagne now comes from Roederer's own vineyards, a good portion of which are run on biodynamic lines. This still-young wine has great depth and richness, a beautiful balance between ripe fruit and crisp texture that make it alive, crisp and bright. As it matures, it will deepen and become even more intense. Drink now if you must, but preferably wait until 2019."
