Ramon Canals Reserva Numerada 2014

Pleasant entrance, some brioche notes and blanched almonds, a little fudge/caramel in there too, becoming more toffee-apple as the crispness makes its mark. Creamy on mid-palate.

Celler Vell Brut Nature Reserva

Banana and green apples on the nose with coconut, toast and some blanched almond. Elegance. Some body too. Melon on the finish, which is crisp but not lean.

Fuchs de Vidal Reserva, Cuvée Especial

Buttery with citrus fruit and bitter almond. A helpful acidic lift tempers the slight butterscotch notes on the mid-palate. Finishes fresh and quite long with a dash of cream.

CastellRoig Reserva Brut Nature

Creamy texture with a fruit driven entry. Sweet/bitter balance. Danish pastry nose with some citrus and blanched almond. Slight toastiness. Good structure.

Ramon Canals Reserva Numerada 2013

Elegance. A fine, persistent mousse. Lime and lemon citrus notes, bready/yeasty. Floral notes with baked apples and a little toast on the palate. Lengthy finish. Pleasing!

Coto de Manoelas

Fresh and crisp with a citrus bitterness. Some yeast notes on the nose. Quite subtle. Pleasant with balanced mouthfeel.
