Grape: Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada.
Sight Pale yellow colour with fine bubbles that form a good crown. Nose On the nose it has white flower aromas, citrus notes and minerals.
Taste On the palate it is fresh, elegant and pleasant. Excellent acidity. A long finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 pts - "This is very chalky and salty, like a sea breeze and as it's kept in contact with the lees for longer, it has more developed aromas and a superb texture provided by the tiny bubbles. It's very lively and youthful, vibrant, with tension, with years ahead of it. This is truly outstanding. It could very well be the finest vintage of this wine ever."
Wine Spectator 90 pts - A minerally version, with up-front petrol and spice notes lacing the poached cherry, salted almond and lemon peel flavors that ride the delicate mousse. Elegant and harmonious. Disgorged February 2017. Drink now through 2020.
About the Winery
The estate consists of 44 parcels (managed separately) representing about 300 hectares of vines planted mainly with native varieties such as Macabeu, Xarel-lo and Parellada. The soils, the deep Galera, consist of different layers of marine fossil sediments embedded in clay and silt with a limestone base. The climate is typically Mediterranean with mild winters and hot and dry summers, whose temperature fluctuations are tempered by the proximity of the sea. The annual production is about 800,000 bottles. The vine is cultivated biodynamically.
