ELYSSIA GRAN CUVÉE BRUT CAVA DO

9185.jpg

Spain — Penedès • $19.95 • 89/100

This is a very good Cava from Freixenet, based on Chardonnay, with contributions from the traditional Cava grapes Macabeo and Parellada, along with some Pinot Noir. Overall quite subtle and sophisticated, the nose is lemony and toasty, with a hint of leesy resin. Moderate residual sugar is largely hidden by firm acidity, and the palate has a creamy texture with a pleasant weight, and a taut, lightly bitter undertone. Perhaps not a general crowd-pleaser, but a very interesting and sophisticated Cava well worth trying. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#392548 • Find it at your nearest LCBODIONYSUS WINES & SPIRITS LTD.
