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.
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.
