Raventos i Blanc

de Nit Rosé Cava Blend 2016

The most storied houses of Catalan often show the best value (opposite is the case in Champagne). It’s like they’ve been in the game long enough to know how to most efficiently make great sparkling wine. Raventos (like the Mure wines from Alsace) is one of these houses.

Soft, fruity, and fine. Splash of Monastrell for nuance.

Raventos i Blanc

Raventós i Blanc Blanc de Blancs 2016

Delectable Wine

This highly perfumed, mineral-driven Spanish bubbly shows wonderful clarity and tension, with no excess weight. Emphatically dry and lively in style, the 2016 offers powerful citrus and orchard fruit character, a suave floral note and impressive, stony persistence. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2019) — 12 days ago

I celebrated the Caps Stanley Cup Champion win with this bottle, sprayed half of it all over 8th St and we all had a sip before signing it. It’s on my mantle now. Buy it at Grand Cata in DC on 7th bet. P and Q NW


Brut de Brut Gran Reserva Brut Nature Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada Blend 2008

My first Paraje Calificado. A 2008, bubbles were quick to dissipate. Flavor was nice, could perceive the age. It was close. Got one more Recaredo to try. Going to look for some younger examples as well. — 4 days ago
