92 View from the Cellar The cépages of the Cygnus Brut Nature “Reserva” is slightly different than the “1+1=3” bottling, as it is a mix of forty percent Xarel-lo, thirty percent each of Parellada and Macabeo, with the wine spending fully two years aging on its fine lees. The bouquet is deep and a touch more precise than very good “1+1=3”, offering up scents of lime, tart orange, beautiful, salty minerality, a touch of ocean breeze and wild fennel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and very nicely balanced, with bright, well-integrated acids, lovely focus and grip, refined, pinpoint bubbles and impressive length and grip on the well-balanced finish. A lovely example. 2017-2027.

91 The Wine Advocate The Non-Vintage Cygnus Brut Nature Organic offers up a sophisticated nose of flowers, mineral, smoked nuts, and brioche along with excellent balance and length on the palate.
In recent years One Plus One Equals Three has been a reliable producer of quality Cava. These new releases are all excellent with several offering very good value.
90 Vinous Media (disgorged in May 2016 after two years on its lees and with zero dosage) Light bright yellow. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by notes of white flowers, ginger and chalky minerals. Dry and sharply focused, offering nicely concentrated orange and quince flavors and a refreshing touch of bitter herbs. Finishes firm, stony and quite long, with resonating spiciness and excellent clarity.
