Top 10 Cavas over £10

1. Freixenet, Casa Sala, Brut Nature, Gran Reserva 2006

bottles-casa-sala-bottleBlend: Parellada and Xarel-lo

Lees ageing: 8 years minimum

Dosage: 0 g/l

Price: £20

Nose: Aged aromas with honey and toast. Slightly sherry like, oxidative but also sweet smelling.

Palate: Honey, patisserie, bready, little fruit now, except some apple skin. Ripe at core with sweetness/roundness from age, although it finishes very dry. Impressive and complex, with a very long finish. Almonds on finish, and a touch of marzipan. Indulgent, lovely, but needs drinking now.
