100% 2010 vintage, 60% Macabeu, 40% Xarello – Pere tells me that, in his mind, the greatest complexity comes from Macabeo and Xerello, moreso than from Parellada. That is why he makes a small amount (roughly 65 cases) of this cuvée using only those two varieties. It has a greater sense of chalky cut and mineral tension, with even more intense white florals. If you are a minerality lover like myself, this has your name on it. The seamlessness of the fruit/minerality/acidity is masterfully measured. Aged for 6 years on the lees before disgorgement. Again, for the money, are you kidding me? Amber gave this one a little “heart”.
