“Bohigas Extra Brut Gran Reserva Cava 2017
The 2017 Cava “Gran Reserva” Extra Brut from Bohigas is composed of a blend of forty percent Xarel-lo, thirty percent Macabeo, twenty percent Parellada and ten percent Chardonnay. The wine spends two and a half years aging on its fine lees prior to disgorgement and was finished with a dosage of three grams per liter. It delivers a lovely and vibrant bouquet of lemon, tart pear, salty soil tones, wild fennel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and focused, with a lovely core, frothy mousse and lovely balance and grip on the long and complex finish. This is excellent Cava! 2021-204 91+ pts
