(2018) A lowly 6g/l dosage for this Blanc de Noirs made from 100% Pinot Noir - which, under Cava regulations, was not allowed until very recently. Aged at least 36 months it has a fairly deep colour with a glint of copper, with a lovely complex nose, certainly some autolysis here, lots of creaminess and a touch of biscuit. The palate has a hint of waxiness and herbs, lime skins and plenty of complexity, hinting at herbs but lemony fresh.
(2018) Zero dosage for this cuvée made from the three traditional Cava grapes, dominated by 55% Xarel.lo, and aged 36 months. Such a lovely deep nose, creamy and a hint of custard, custard apple, the palate really fresh, the zero dosage giving a crystalline, running water clarity to the finish. Bone-dry, but has a lovely lemon zest and apple brightness. Note that stockist and price quoted at time of review are for the 2010 vintage.
(2018) One of my favourites of the range, but sadly it doesn't seem to be available retail in the UK at time of writing. 100% Chardonnay with 7g/l dosage, but higher acid makes it feel noticeably drier than the rosé. Really lovely nose, almondy, mealy and rich, with a creaminess and tang of citrus and a bit of melon-rind grip. I also tasted the 2008 with lunch which was wonderfully rich and toasty, having developed beautifully in bottle as I suspect this will too. Finishes with lovely freshness and length.
(2018) A selection of the base wines that Toni thinks have the greatest capacity to age. 42 months in bottle for this wine, made from the three Cava grapes plus 25% Chardonnay, and only 6g/l dosage. Deep and nettly, bready aromas, with a wonderful development giving nuttiness and toast in the mouth, a broad sense of richness, the finish complex and layered. Stockist and price quoted at time of review are for the 2011 vintage.
