Back in 2000, the cava world did not have a unique guide and since then the publication is sought after by bubble lovers and recognized as an authority on cavas in the wine import industry.
As always, we selected the Top 50 by looking at body, colour, clarity and bubbles. We tasted for acidity, mouth-feel and mousse, finish, balance, sweetness and overall flavour. We searched deep for primary and secondary aromas and bouquet.
Cavas were classified and tasted according to dosage and ageing time on the lees. This year’s blind tasting has been an exceptional one as (after much debate) all of the 50 Great Cavas 2014 have scored at least 93 points. Some nice prices too ranging from 5 to 50 Euros making them affordable for not only special occasions but also for aperitifs and slow cooking meals with family and friends.
As many of the 50 Great Cavas tend to be difficult to find in a local wine shop, the Wine Pleasures team came up with an online solution to tasting the 50 Great Cavas anywhere in Europe thanks to a synergy with online wine retailers Decantalo.
New for 2014 is a short section on wine tourism where cava lovers are provided with accommodation options when visiting some of the 50 Great Cava producers.
