"Who needs champagne when a cava can be as good as this? Neal Martin
De Nit 2009 93 points“The outstanding 2009 De Nit (rose) has an almost hypnotic, perfect pale hue that isworth the price alone! A blend of classic Cava varieties with 5% Monastrell, it issourced from 30- to 40-year-old vines from the estate. The nose is very subtle and verypretty with traces of rosewater, fish scale and Morello cherries, all beautifully definedand drawing you in. The palate is crisp and tense on the entry: a minimalist rose cavethat is based on freshness and poise rather than delivering fruit intensity. It is adelicate, very pretty, harmonious Cava rose that is sensual and alluring. Who needsChampagne when Cava can be as good as this? Drink now-2015+ ”
