Cava Mestres Clos Nostre Senyor 75cl 2012
15% Parellada, 20% Macabeo, 65% Xarel.lo.
Goed op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2023 nog verder ontwikkelen.
The Wine Advocate (about 2010):
"Produced exclusively with grapes from their own vineyards, the 2010 Clos Nostre Senyor fermented and matured in barrique with the lees for ten months and then refermented in bottle, where it was kept for no less than 84 months. Natural cork closure is used during the bottle aging, and the wine has no dosage (brut nature). 2010 was a great vintage in the zone (and in many regions in Spain), and the wine feels extremely young. It has a pale bright color, paler than some younger wines even, and a subtle and reticent nose. The palate is quite sharp, with even some austerity, dry and serious. This is a very impressive Cava: it's still young and has potential for another decade (or more) in bottle, even after being disgorged.
One-hundred percent of the sparkling wines from Mestres are aged under cork in bottle. Mestres is a very traditional Cava producer, one of the few quality producers that remain in the appellation, a kind of López de Heredia of Cava. They now age their wines for at least 42 months in bottle with the lees (they only sell Gran Reserva wines), aiming for the upper level of the market, mainly in restaurants and high gastronomy. They have 22 hectares of old vines and a further 18 hectares rented and farmed by the family, organically farmed but without certification. All of their wines, except the one entry-level, ferment and mature in chestnut barrels with the lees before being put in bottle to referment, and they are all aged under cork and always with the disgorgement date on the back label."
