The 2005 III Lustros Gran Reserva Brut Nature (disgorged January 2012) is a blend of 70% Xarello and 30% Macabeu from the 5-hectare -La Plana- vineyard that lies 200 meters above sea-level. It spends seven years on the lees and is dosaged with 100-year-old Solera wine. It possesses brilliant clarity on the nose with touches of oyster shell citrus lemon wet limestone and yellow flowers. The palate is supremely well-balanced with electrifying acidity on the entry displaying subtle notes of apricot lemon curd and quince that lead to a perfectly balanced finish. This is a wonderful Cava that deserves 2-3 hours aeration. Drink now-2018+

Bright gold color. This blend of 70% xarello and 30% macabeu delivers on all cylinders. Taste this blind and you could easily be convinced this is vintage Blanc de Blancs.

Taste this blind and you could easily be convinced this is vintage Blanc de Blancs. Citrus rind acacia and toasty brioche on the nose elevate the senses. The enveloping palate has notes of quince baked apple dried apricot and candied ginger. Fruit and oak are well- balanced with mouthwatering acidity. Recently disgorged for freshness and ready to pair with any seafood dish. Without question the balance purity and depth will enable this to age for another decade. In a class beyond ordinary Cava this serious bubbly demands attention from Champagne enthusiasts!
