90 View from the Cellar The non-vintage “1+1=3” Brut Rose from Cava Cygnus is comprised of a fifty-fifty blend of garnaxta and pinot noir. Again, the vineyards are certified organic for this bottling. This too is from the base year of 2018, was disgorged in August of 2020 with a finishing dosage of eight grams per liter. The nose is bright and stylish, delivering a fine combination of blood orange, a touch of wild strawberry, saline soil tones, dried flowers and just a hint of smokiness. On the palate the wine is zesty, full-bodied and quite elegant in profile, with a good core, fine mineral drive and grip, elegant mousse and a long, complex and perfectly balanced finish. I find the texture of the mousse here just a tad more refined than in the Brut NV this year. Good juice. 2021-2035.

89 Vinous Media Limpid pink. Fresh red fruits, orange zest and a hint of spiciness on the nose. Taut and focused in the mouth, offering strawberry and red currant flavors that show good clarity and back-end cut. Finishes with firm bite, a refreshingly bitter edge and good tenacity. Lot #19284, disgorged in September 2019. 2021- 2024
