Green and red apples, good acidity and balance and the best Spanish bubbly of the year.

High-end vintage champagne quality. Aged 12 years on the lees. Best Cava I've had by a long shot. For the price I'd still buy champagne.

Distinctly not Champagne, but it's own honest interpretation of extended triage traditional method sparkling. Savory, umami, some toasted sesame notes. Noticeable bitterness in the palate.

A rare and as-yet unreleased wine. Celler Batlle aged TWELVE YEARS on the lees. Holy moly! 1500 bottles made brut, 1500 bottles made brut nature.

Tastes like a good $30 Champagne. At $ 85, not worth it. Clean flavor but no special notes. One of the best Cavas I have had, but confirms my belief that no Cava is worth drinking.
