Raventos i Blanc L’ Hereu 2013

"I got a chance to meet Pepe Raventós, who now runs his family winery which dates back to the 1400s. The Raventós family was the first to produce sparkling wine in Spain centuries ago. Pepe has grown frustrated by recent Cava trends which tend to focus more on mass quantity rather than quality. Not many producers are making vintage wines, letting the wine age on lees for an extended amount of time, or even using indigenous grapes to the area. So as the Cava DO becomes more commercialized, Raventós removed itself from the designation four years ago and is in the process of creating a new, more strict designation that's awaiting approval by Spanish wine law.

I wouldn't be telling you the Raventós story if I didn't think the wine was phenomenal. And let me say, Raventós makes an absolutely killer sparkling wine. But stylistically, this is closer to grower Champagne than just about any Cava I've had. The bubbles are tiny and well integrated. The wine is aged on the lees for 18 months, resulting in a soft, rounded coating on the palate. Because the distributor was closing out the 2012 vintage, we can offer Raventós at a reduced price of $19.99. Not a lot of coin, for what I think is among the best sparklers I've had from Spain." -Brendan Kennedy - Wine Buyer
