1 Segura Viudas Extra Dry
Comments: Floral and cheesy on the nose with a nice underlay of apple and lime zest fruit. Lovely on entry, this shows a hint of firmness in the mouth with crystal clear citrus and apple fruit flavors that recall sweet fruit without obvious sugar. The finish is clean and crisp, and shows a bit more sweetness but at the same time this is fresh and easy to drink with great apple fruit. 87pts

2 Cordon Neg Extra Dry (1988)
Comments: A bit sweet and citrussy on the nose with some slightly funky earthy notes. Soft in the mouth with fairly refined bubbles. This is well-balanced and round showing off a nice blend of green and yellow citrus notes, a little yeasty complexity and lovely apple and pear flavors. A little sweet but at the same time well balanced with penetrating acidity that drives the finish. 87pts

3 Jaume Serra Cava Semi Seco (NV)
Comments: Lightly floral on the nose with hints of white flowers over gentle apple fruit with a squirt of lime, simple but fresh. In the mouth this shows off lovely citrus fruit over a nice integrated base of yeasty complexity. Rather light and distinctly fresh in the mouth, this is easy to drink and finishes on the dry side with refreshing dried citrus and mineral flavors. 86pts

4 Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava (NV)
Comments: Mineral and earth driven on the nose with linden flower, honey and candied lime aromas. Fairly light on the palate in a fresh, crisp style that showcases earthy flavors with hints of yeast, mushroom, apple and lemon pith. A fairly dry style with decent length and a nice dry snap on the finish. 86pts

5 Freixenet Carta Nevada Brut Spain Cataluna Cava (1987)
Comments: Earthy apple core, floral and dried citrus aromas with a hint of caramel. Mousse is a little coarse but this does show off fairly rich, apple and sweet citrus flavors in a fruity style that takes advantage of the residual sugar to create a smooth mouthfeel without being obviously sweet, though the sugar lingers a bit on the finish. 85pts
