Can Mayol Loxarel "999" Brut Nature Rosat Penedes

SKU #1146232 91 points Wine & Spirits

 There’s intriguing complexity to this firmly structured rosé, a meaty wine that’s dry without feeling tannic. The mousse is finely integrated into the flavor, set to lift the flavors of duck confit or roast quail.  (8/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Loxarel 999 Rosat is made up of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Trepat. Salmon pink in color with persistent small bubbles, it is a tasty wine best used as an aperitif.  (5/2011)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Orange-pink. Musky red fruits, herbs and flowers on the nose, along with a hint of underbrush. Taut redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors are braced by gentle acidity, ultimately showing a slight tartness. The brisk, dry-edged finish features good persistence and an echo of bitter cherry skin.  (11/2011)

Wine Enthusiast

 Good on the nose, with solid raspberry and nectarine aromas. The palate is spunky and alert, with juicy red-cherry, rhubarb and integrated spice flavors. It’s mostly a clean, basic, easy-to-drink bubbly, but it’s persistent, harmonious and commendable. Pinot Noir with Trepat is the grape mix.  (12/2010)

This is a super impressive value bubbly that delivers fun, delicious red fruit flavors with a dry, clean finish. At $13 bucks, this bottle totally over-delivers! Super recommended for any occasion.

Little by little, more folks are discovering this gem of a a producer of sparkling Penedes wine (they refuse to label it Cava, since cava can technically come from many places outside of the Penedes region where they are based). This is our go to household pink bubbly. It is unapologetically dry, yet so flavorful, explosive and authoritative on the palate, that it is hard to believe we are dealing with under $15 bubbles here. Tangy red fruits, perhaps a suggestion of hibiscus, combine with a nice bead and pleasing texture to make this such a great sparkling wine for the money. As this is a DI, I have been to the property, seen the care with which these vines are grown and the wine is made, and can only say that all of the Loxarel wines, including this one, have my highest recommendation.

I love Rose, and I love it even more if it has bubbles in it and only takes $12.99 out of your pocket. This sparkling Cava has quickly cemented itself as one of our everyday bottle of bubbles in our house. Super dry, with no dosage to hide behind, the palate is crisp and clean, notes of raspberry and dried cranberry. Pure, almost crystalline, delicious wine.

This is an absolutely wonderful, delicious Cava Brut Rose with distinctive red fruit characteristics of strawberry and red cherry, not only in the mouth, but in its high-profile aromatics. Dry, clean, and crisp across the palate, this Gem finishes with a mouthwatering set of flavors. The Bean has informed me that we need cases of this brilliantly produced Gem before the summer ends. It will be our house sparkler for however long it is around. You should not miss this beauty.

This is a bone dry and serious bottle of bubbly offered at a ridiculous price. With its sophisticated bead, laser like red fruit flavors of cherry and berry and steely finish, this would be right at home with the classiest of fare. Try this with surf & turf or sushi and don't be embarrassed by the price.
