Tim’s Tasting Notes

91

2011 Juvé y Camps Reserva de la Familia Gran Reserva, Cava

£19.50, 12%, Exel Wines; Fortnum & Mason; Philglas & Swiggot

Tasted at: June Tasting Review

A prime example of why it's worth paying just a little but more (and still less than most Champagne and English fizz) to drink top end Cava rather than the basic supermarket stuff. Rich, honeyed, yet bone dry, this is a traditional style with toasty maturity and the slight bitterness that's often a feature of Xarel-lo based wines.
