|The Cava “1+1=3” non-vintage Brut is made from a cépages of forty percent Macabeu, thirty percent Xarel-lo and thirty percent Parellada, with both the Macabeu and Parellada vines averaging more than fifty years of age and all of the grapes grown organically. The wine was aged for at least twelve months sur latte and finished with a dosage of 8.5 grams per liter after its disgorgement in July of 2022. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of lemon, tart pear, wild fennel, salty minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a good core, fine soil undertow, frothy mousse and a long, well-balanced and quite classy finish. This is a lovely bottle of Cava Brut. 2023-2035+.
