50 % merlot, 50 % cabernet sauvignon. This 2015 Pessac-Léognan might well be the finest value in the whole of Bordeaux. Fresh dark berries intertwined with the typical subtle Pessac-Léognan spiciness. Perfectly balanced, this wine seduces with its purity of fruit and fine-grained tannins. It is profound and very elegant, concentrated but not over-extracted, with perfectly integrated oak and a long deliciously spicy finish. At less than 25 euro this is a steal. — 4 months ago

Spain, Barcelona - Conca del Riu Anoia (Not Cava, working on unique DO since 2012)
Clear, lighter side of medium gold, steady stream of bubbles.
Clean, lite autolytic character, medium mineral, could develop further
Dry, medium acidity, sleek body, light autolytic notes before notes of saline mineral, even dispersion of delicate bubbles on palette.
Good on its own, better with food, more pronounced acidity saline and autolytic notes with food. bubble basically gone in last pour (1.5 hours). Very much welcomed at my table, very happy.
Old vines in Goblet system from 1964.
