External Reviews for Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Premier
Unexpectedly complex, this first hints at smoke, cocoa and dry spices, and that layering rolls into the taste as well. Forward, ripe apple fruitiness rises above a dry hint of apple skin, wrapping up in a citrus and mineral grip.
Tastes flavorful and complex, is rich in texture and long on the finish. Has powerful fruit and good balance.
This is clean, fresh and lively - a classic blend of macabeo, parellada and xarel-lo. At this price, it's difficult to find another sparkling wine in the world that delivers such consistent quality and character. It has a delicacy about it. The leanness and minerality of this swine would pair well with melon.
Segura Viudas’ entry level Cava the Non-Vintage Brut Reserva offers up a pleasant perfume of yeast notes biscuit and green apple. It is a straightforward lively slightly off-dry bubbly that is a good value for drinking over the next 12–18 months.
This Brut Cava is made up of 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo from the Alt Penedandegrave;s region of Spain and made in the mandegrave;thode traditionnelle. The nose displays plenty of citrus and lemon peel, with a hint of pear as well. The palate consists of creamy lemon custard and toast, with a finish of crisp Granny Smith apples. This is, without a doubt, the best sparkling wine I have ever had for under $10. Segura Viudas continually impresses me with their Cava, and that is why you can always find a bottle in my refrigeratorandhellip; because you never know when you may need to celebrate with bubbly. Drink now and oftenandhellip; especially with friends.
This is as crisp and dry as a whispy reed with a mild grassy note on the nose. It feels fresh and focused with lime peach and apple flavors. Fruity fresh and easy to like from start to finish this is what a Best Buy should be.
