Sparkling Wine

Robert Parker Notes : The 2007 Gran Reserva Brut Nature III Lustros is a sparkling wine with a long history, aged for seven years in contact with the lees and kept without adding any liqueur d'expédition (Brut Nature). They like a blend of 75% Xarello and 25% Macabeo, which is a constant across the range, but the long aging provides for the telltale Penedès balsamic aromas of camphor, bay leaf and fennel, with a touch of petrol. The palate shows a compact wine, with very good integration of all the components, bright acidity and fine bubbles that provide a silky texture. It feels younger than it is, a good compromise between youth and development. 45,000 bottles disgorged in six different batches.

Tasting Notes : Straw hue with golden highlights. Fruity freshness of apples, pears, ripe citrus fruits and grapefruit peel on the nose with a herbal backdrop of fennel and rosemary. Ageing aromas of hazelnuts, toast, brioche and toffee. The cava becomes more expressive as it opens up in the glass. On the palate it shows a powerful entry with great structure. The mousse is fine and creamy with loads of candied fruit balanced by the notes from ageing. A lively refreshing palate with a never ending after taste.
