"Albireo, a bluish-red double star in the Cygnus Constellation, inspires a Cava with an honest personality, fresh and plenty of subtle aromas. Made with the three Catalonia’s traditional and indigenous grape varieties, Albireo stands out for its crisp" —

90+ View from the Cellar The new release of the Cygnus “Albireo” Cava Reserva Brut is made from a blend of forty- five percent Macabeu (forty-nine year-old vines), thirty-five percent Xarel-lo and twenty percent Parellada, with all of the grapes grown organically. The wine was aged fifteen months in its fine lees prior to disgorgement in July of 2022. The wine offers up a refined bouquet of lemon, tart pear, wild fennel, salty white soil tones and a topnote of lemongrass. On the palate the wine is crisp, precise and full-bodied, with a good core, excellent mineral undertow, frothy mousse and lovely length and grip on the impeccably balanced finish. I do not know what the dosage is for this bottling, but it seems quite low and perfectly suited to the wine. A lovely bottle. 2023-2040.
John Gilman - Issue #103 January/February 2023.
90 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of lemon curd, orange blossom and croissant set the scene for flavors of pineapple, lemon-lime sorbet, marzipan and rose water. This wine is lightly effervescent on the tongue and has a bright lemon zest finish.
