Casteller Brut Cava NV

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely aromatic with huge notes of bitter apples, melon, sharp herbs and fresh, polleny flowers on the nose. With a slightly coarse mousse, and obvious sweetness in the mouth this is a bit clunky after the nose, though there is a nice balance between the powdered sugar coated fresh lemon fruit and a gentle underlying bitter, yeasty edge, all topped with gentle herbal notes. The finish is tight and short at first with almost with a hint of tannin and some creamy vanilla notes, but a little bit of air frees it up and this reveals an exceptionally long and intensely flavored finish. This comes together nicely in a slightly rough around the edges style, though it offers a lot of cava for the money. 87pts

The Casteller Cava is aged for 14 months on the lees adding a degree of complexity unlike many Cavas. Light straw in color with aromas of green apples and brioche bread.
