Gran Reserva de la Familia Brut Nature Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada 2017

Made from Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada grapes, bright pale gold with a frothy creamy mousse, small plentiful bubbles with a steady stream. Aromas of apple and citrus with toasty notes. Well integrated, nice mouthfeel, elegant long finish. Great value as an exceptional alternative to French Champagne. — 9 days ago

Bodegas La Cartuja

Priorat Garnacha Cariñena 2018

No notes. Has shelf life as tannins still integrating. More stony & blue notes, & unusually low price tag for a Priorat. Wine #3 in line up for family. — 25 days ago

Super light and refreshing. Perfect summer or seafood partner. Mikey liked too. — 19 days ago

Clos Mogador

Priorat Red Blend 2013

See previous note 2 years ago in March 2022. Still very consistent impressions. Black and blue fruits, as mentioned before. Dried plum and earth with herbal notes (fennel). Priorat Garnacha and Garnacha blends are some of my favourite wine styles. Clos Mogador is biodynamic and Rene Barbier does not use chemicals in the vineyard. — 2 months ago
