Maria Casanovas Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2009
90 (VM) 89 (WE)
Score Publication Review Copy
90 Vinous Media (disgorged November 2012): Pale gold. Expressive white peach and melon aromas are complicated by mint, fennel and toasty lees. Pliant, sappy and broad, the spice-laced honeydew, nectarine and pineapple flavors show very good clarity and lift. This silky, juicy Cava shows noteworthy concentration and serious finishing cut.
89 The Wine Enthusiast At first this is bready, and that’s all. With airing, things turn more complex. In the mouth, this feels racy and firmly acidic, while flavors of citrus turn yeasty and malty with time. A long, layered, yeasty finish shows a slow pulse and not much zest.
