Llopart Reserva Brut 2011 Rosé Cava, Spain, $22.99-$24.99, 92 points, poured a lovely ripe peach pink color with a full head of foam and diminishing residual effervescence.
Aromatic peach, flowers, and red fruit were wonderful.
The invigorating, sparkling, and dry light body managed early palate pretend sweetness with a clean bone dry strawberry transitioning toward a tart red raspberry.
Finished long on the trailing palate, just a hint of lemon, and a perfectly comfortable 11.5% alcohol.
This was the most expensive Cava I've tasted, but well worth the price, especially as compared with good Champagne.
