NV Barcino Cava Brut
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 ~ This sensational non-vintage Barcino Cava was made from a solera system where the dosage was started in the 1940s. A blend of 55 percent Xarello, 25 percent Macabeo and 20 percent Parellada, from vines planted in 1995, this crisp, delicious, dry sparkler spent 12 months on its lees. Attractive notes of honeyed brioche, poached pear and caramelized grapefruit jump from the glass of this zesty, light-bodied, exceptionally well-crafted, pure, fresh cava. Only 5,000 cases produced.
