Drank with a silliness and mouthfeel more reminiscent of a sparkling chenin

The wine’s tender mousse yields a fragrance of pear, fresh dough, and wet stone, and the body is tingly, its delicate bubbles carrying piercing acidity and lemon-laurel essence. Made with certified organic Parellada, Macabeo, and Xarel·lo grown at high elevations in Catalunya; the winery is transitioning to biodynamics. I visited the winery in June and was impressed with the wines, the winemakers, and their philosophy. Pair this Brut with fresh cheeses, tapas, picnic sandwiches, and a sunny day. 11.5% abv | about $15

Bubbly like a coke! Not very complex; not bad.

Paired well with fried zucchini and a dill-horseradish aoli. Apple & pear prominent. Refreshing.

Lots of bubbles that last. Crisp and clean with a slight mineral flavor.

Nice bubbles. Fruity flavor. Nice with bread and spreadable cheese.
