90+ View from the Cellar The Cygnus “Sador” cuvée has a slightly different cépages from the Albireo, as here the blend is forty percent each of Xarel-lo and Parellada and twenty percent Macabeo. Like the previous examples, the wine is from the base year of 2019 and this cuvée was disgorged in November of 2021 and is non-dosé. The bouquet is beautifully precise and expressive, hoppingfrom the glass in a mix of lemon, pink grapefruit, very salty minerality, dried flowers and a topnote of lemongrass. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, mineral-driven and snappy,with a fine core, frothy mousse and a long, youthful and complex finish. Without its bit of finishing dosage, I would be inclined to tuck away the Sador in the cellar for just a year or twoand let its acids relax a bit more before drinking it. However, as I often find is the case with Brut Nature bottlings of top flight Cava, the aromatic and flavor precision here is exemplary. 2023-2045+.
