Recaredo Intens Rosat Cava Brut Nature 2014
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 points:
"I was very impressed with the 2014 Intens Rosat Brut Nature Gran Reserva, a truly Mediterranean wine with an intense color (it looks more like a light red), and for the first time, it doesn't have any Pinot Noir, which was ripped out in 2014. So, this is a blend of 86% Monastrell and 14% Garnacha, and ironically enough, now that it doesn't have any Pinot, the wine feels more Burgundian than ever! It's also more vinous with the texture of the bubbles, a wine that happens to have bubbles. It feels more austere than the previous vintages, something I like, and it has elegant rusticity with a pleasant bitterness in the finish. 18,000 bottles produced."
