NV El Xamfra Cava Mercat Brut Nature

For the price, this is excellent. Crisp yet with adequate body and refreshing. If you are expecting champagne, you will be disappointed... but why would you expect champagne when you are drinking a cava?

No real aging potential, but should keep well for 2-3 years.

Popped and poured. Faint aroma of buttered toast. Pleasant flavors of apples and yeast. Mace flavors in the finish. Firm acid, simple flavors, straightforward, surprisingly delicate - not a good pairing with assertive foods (as I found out the hard way). Good straight up cava, and a great value.

Cumpleaños de mi hermnao.

Vamos a por una MILF, miedo en el cuerpo, es un cava barato con deguelle del 2010 pero lo hemos bebido en un gran momento.

Gran desarrollo de terciarios como no podia ser otra forma, mucho regaliz, café, crema, muy vinoso con una burbuja presente, integrada y dando esa sensación de chantilly sintoma de calidad.

Un poco de manzana asada con mantequilla se une al festival con tiempo en la copa.

Muy rico y listo para beber. No se me hizo nada pesado, al contrario, un gran sabor con una integración perfecta de acidez y burbujas.

BTG purchase. Straw color with lots of effervescence. Minerals, toast, and tart stone fruit aromas and flavors. As expected very dry on the palate leading to a long persistent finish. Great on a hot summer day.

This wine does not work on regular sparkling temperature. It works alright at around 12 to 14 C.

Fourth generation Cava grower reccomended by Gramana to the American importer. Hand-disgorged and riddle. Fleshy, rich tasting Cava. Great palate, Cava nose. Works for around $15 or so.

The Iberian Peninsula (My apartment): Very nice bold Cava. Perhaps a slight sulfur problem? A little metallic / burnt match note on the nose, but this blew off to reveal quite a lovely warm nose yet a bright palate. Smooth mousse, big body, long finish. Very pleasant and not bad for $15.

2009 El Xamfra Cava Brut

Big effervescence, really bubbly. Apples and pears on the nose. This was a medium brut, not sugary, not bitter. Light and refreshing with the bubbly zing in the mouth, but just ever so creamy as well on the finish. Seems like it would be versatile, and plenty good in mimosas. But we had no issue with polishing the bottle off by itself.

Pale straw yellow color with lot of bubbles, and floral, stone fruit, citrus and slight sweet yeast aromas. On the palate, it has a surprisingly explosive, yet soft mousse, and approaches medium-bodied with stone fruit, citrus, and toasted nut flavors. Medium finish. 11.5% alcohol. Zero dosage. A great value!

Sweet but balanced, decent with food, a bit light on it's own.
