Albet I Noya Cava Brut Reserva
Wine Enthusiast 87 points (Nov 2010)
A little maderized and heavy at first, with soda and vanilla on the nose. The palate is reserved, not aggressive, with dried papaya, grapefruit and soda-like flavors. Finishes almost tropical in flavors, with balancing bitter pith. Good but shy Cava made from 25% Chardonnay and the usual grapes.
Vinous 88 points (Nov 2011)
(30% xarel-lo, 25% each of parellada and chardonnay and 20% macabeu): Pale gold. Spicy pear and peach skin aromas are complicated by white pepper and beeswax. Fleshy, smooth and refreshingly bitter, offering lively orchard fruit flavors and good back-end lift. This vivacious wine closes on a nervy, spicy note, with good length. -- Josh Raynolds
Wine & Spirits 87 points (Aug 2013)
Cranberry and red apple skin scents fill this round and supple wine, before it shrinks back into the finish. It’s clean, short and peppery in the end. Some jamon Iberico might bring out the fruit.
The Non-Vintage Brut Reserva uses 25% Chardonnay in the blend along with the traditional varieties and spent 15 months on lees. It displays an expressive nose of mineral, brioche, and flowers leading to a wine with good volume, savory flavors, and moderate length. Drink both of these Cavas over the next 12-18 months.
Wine maker notes
This cava has been made according to the traditional method. It was aged in our cellars at a constant 16ºC, and clarified. It was also disgorged manually without freezing and the date of this operation is printed on the back label. It will be in its optimum condition for the following 18 months. We recommend serving it at 6°C..
