2010 vintage base year, 45% Macabeu, 40% Xarello, 15% Parellada, with 20% reserve wines aged in barrel, less than 1g residual sugar. Winner winner chicken dinner. This is plain outstanding for its sense of layered complexity, the 20% neutral barrel aged reserve wines bringing another little somethin’ somethin’ to its sense of bracing texture and flavor. I think that Pere, Amber, and I were all in agreement that this is rightfully the top of the range. Whereas there isn’t a wine in the selected range that isn’t beyond worthy, this one would be my candidate to serve blind in a Champagne tasting to embarrass French winemakers for their prices…..Amber gave this one a little “heart”. Get a 6pk-case, and thank me later.
