Publication Score Comments
The Wine Advocate 90 The Non-Vintage Cygnus Brut Organic exhibits similar aromatics [a sophisticated nose of flowers, mineral, smoked nuts, and brioche] with greater depth and flavors 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.
