|Sabaté i Coca is a member of the prestigious Corpinnat|
Castellroig Reserva Brut
Refined mousse, youthful and slightly spicy in scent with nuances of anise, yellow fruit and fennel. The taste is fresh, juicy and dry and ends aromatic with a persistent mousse.
Nine leading Cava producers have united in 'Corpinnat'. Their method distinguishes them from mastodons such as Freixenet and Codorníu. The sparkling wines are made in the members' own cellars from exclusively home-grown, hand-picked and organic grapes.
This is also the case with Sabaté i Coca, which makes a truly fantastic sparkling white wine from the traditional xarel-lo, macabeo and pearllada grapes with the beautiful Mosset. Thanks to a whopping 40 months of aging in the bottle, this Brut Nature has beautiful brioche notes and a wonderful mild attack. Think Vintage Champagne, but from Catalunya and at a fraction of the price.
De Grote Hamersma - May 2020: 8.5 | Dry, of course, but emphatically ripe and pleasing
Sparkling Spanish, and from the Penedès, but on the label the term 'cava' mainly shines through its absence. Instead: Corpinnat. Derived from cor (heart) and Pinnat - archetypal form of Penedès. Chosen as the flag by a small group of ex-cava producers who distance themselves from the DO Cava. Because they are ashamed of the quality level of a large number of colleagues. Price tags of sometimes € 3.99 damage the reputation of the category. Big names such as Recaredo and Gramona have stripped themselves of the cava 'quality stamp' in 2019 and will now sail under the Corpinnat flag. And if you want to know who that elite is: see www.corpinnat.com. One of the prestigious fincas is Sabaté i Coca, which specializes in terroir-typed wines. Of which we now find a vintage Turó del Mosset Terrases del Bitlles 2014 in the glass. Aromatic orange blossom, marzipan and some almond shavings. Dry, of course, but emphatically ripe and pleasing. NB: so once went into the bottle as cava, but came out as Corpinnat again.
Jancis Robinson - January 2020: 16/20 points | Very ripe fruit, full of toast aromas and a rich nose
Tasted blind. Very ripe fruit, full of toast aromas and a rich nose full of nuances. Complex. Quite dry, but a restrained freshness. On the palate, it keeps its very ripe fruit flavors paired with fennel and nuts (but no pastry). Well made with a tight finish.
The Wine Advocate - August 2019: 91/100 points | Very tasty flavors and a dry palate with a chalky texture
The new sparkling white 2014 Mosset Brut Nature is from a zone that names the wine, a terraced part of the Bitlles River in Penedès. This is the first vintage produced. It has a very expressive nose with a notable absence of fruit and is stony, austere and mineral with some lemon peel citrus twist and some fennel. It has very tasty flavors and a dry palate with a chalky texture and a saline hint on the finish. Brilliant. This is not about the grapes, but it's produced with 65% Xarello, 25% Macabeu and 10% Parellada and matured with the lees in bottle for at least 48 months.
