90 View from the Cellar 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+.
Issue #103 - January/February 2023.
90 Wine & Spirits Magazine This is a tight, floral blend of xarel•lo, parellada and macabeo, organically farmed at U Mes U’s estate vineyards in Penedès. Spring flower scents of narcissus meet green apple and pear nectar flavors in a luscious Cava. The touch of sweetness in the end will meld well with jamón serrano.

89 Vinous Media Bright yellow-gold. Fresh pit fruits, orange and a hint of smokiness on the nose and in the mouth. Chewy and focused, showing good depth and building spiciness on the nicely persistent finish, which leaves a hint of yellow plum behind. Lot #19093, disgorged in April 2019. 2021- 2024
Josh Raynolds - March 2021
88 Wine Enthusiast This wine has a nose of nectarine, Gala apple and cashew. It is bright in the mouth, offering flavors of ripe summer peach, Valencia orange and lime zest with a hint of pie crust.
