|90||View from the Cellar||The current release of 1+1=3 Cava Brut Rosé is quite pale in color, with just a gentle kiss of pink. The cépages here is again quite unique in my experience for Cava Rosé, being composed of a mix of seventy-five percent Garnacha, fifteen percent Pinot Noir and only ten percent Trepat. It is aged for a minimum of twelve months sur latte and again, finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. The bouquet here is quite delicate and stylish, offering up scents of strawberries, a touch of tangerine, gentle smokiness, rose petals and a fine base of white soil tones. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with fine depth in the mid-palate, frothy mousse and excellent length and grip on the complex and quite elegant finish. This is lovely juice. 2018-2028.
Issue #75 – May/June 2018
|90||Vinous Media||Light, bright orange. Orange zest, redcurrant and lavender, along with a zesty mineral topnote. Silky and focused on the palate, offering energetic red berry, citrus pith flavors and a hint of smokiness on the back half. Closes on a vibrant mineral note, displaying very good energy and a persistent blood orange accent. (Lot 17267; disgorged in November, 2017; eight grams per liter of residual sugar)
