Appearance This Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature cava from Penedès has a clean appearance with an attractive golden colored body and a rosary of effervescence that forms persistent columns of fine bubbles that are slow-to-rise.
Nose Interesting aromatics that are marked by a unique fruity character, especially tropical fruits, and there are enticing blue floral aromatics. This nose has a background of divine crianza ageing notes that clearly present delicate notes of fine and sweet gourmet pastries.
Palate This cava has a fresh entrance onto the palate that is notably fruity with some meatiness. This is an enveloping palate that has a good body from the time the wine base was aged in oak. This palate presents a pleasant creaminess which supports the brilliant integration of this cava´s effervescence onto this palate. This effervescence will melt in your mouth along with a pleasant, fine, and well-balanced acidity. This cava has a long and fruity finish with pleasant crianza ageing notes, fine lees, and pastries. There is a delicate aftertaste that is slightly bitter. All things considered this cava has a very well-structured palate.
Our personal opinion Clos Lentiscus Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature is a delicious Spanish cava. We had the opportunity to pair this cava with a classic Spanish “coques de recpte” which is similar to an omelet with grilled vegetables. We were very happy with this cava pairing, you should try it too!
