20 Autumn Wines, Eric Asimov
Spain produces an ocean of cheap cava, the sparkling wine guzzled throughout the country. Much of it is forgettable, but this pale rosé is elegant, nuanced and fresh, with balanced, persistent flavors.
Wall Street Journal, Friday June 22, "Selling cava in the city" by Lettie Teague
"his aim is to make more than just the greatest cava (the sparkling wine of Spain); he wants to produce "the best high-mineral-content sparkling wine in the world", and yes, that includes Champagne. (Though Mr. Raventós likens his wines more to Chablis)."

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+ ”

Cuando entiendes que la protagonista es la naturaleza y no el hombre, abandonas el ego y te conviertes en un nature assistant, puedes ayudar a crear un vino más próximo al arte que al gran comsumo.
