91+pts, A View From The Cellar


The current release of Cygnus Brut Nature NV is made from a blend of forty percent of Xarel-lo and thirty percent each of Macabeo and Peralada. Again, this is produced entirely from fruit picked in certified organic vineyards and was aged for twenty to twenty-four months sur latte. The wine delivers excellent depth and complexity in its aromatic constellation of breadfruit, sea salts, white soil tones, dried flowers and a nice touch of menthol in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with beautifully buffered acids, a fine core, very elegant mousse and impressive length and grip on the classy finish. This is excellent Brut Nature. 2018-2030. - John Gilman

If you haven't explored the magnificent world of Cava yet, here is a brilliant place to start. At 50% off and a 91+pt score, this organically grown, exquisite sparkling (truly exquisite, it's hard to believe it's only $15!), is a go-to sparkling to have on hand on the daily. Because if you haven't stocked your cellar with an everyday sparkler, what are you even doing with your life? Everyday is an occasion, ya know? Pop those bubbles!

Amazing complexity, exhilarating purity and freshness, the wine has a wondrous plethora of aromas and flavors from breadfruit (think a flowering tree in the mulberry and jackfruit family), sea salt, white soil tones, dried flowers and a lovely touch of menthol for a long, racy, minty finish. Absolutely palate pleasing and with that organic certification, it's 100% good for your mind, body and soul.

How do you say no to $15? We sure couldn't. Get it while it lasts!

THE STORY TO KNOW

1+1=3 (One Plus One Makes Three) started its business activity in Masía Navinès, located in Guardiola de Font Rubí, in the year 2000. The founders Josep Anton Bonell and the oenologist Josep Piñol already had a great experience in the wine world, but starting the company meant a new beginning for their cellar in Alt Penedès. The name 1+1=3 is about driving the company to be something more than just 2, by making the client be an active part of it.

Their commitment to the land and the love for their vines is the origin of their philosophy. The passion for the job, the recognition of their products and their customers satisfaction have allowed 1+1=3 to spread the wine culture and find a space in this sector. The wines are attractive, elegant, modern and smooth thanks largely to their efforts and the long experience of entire generations.
