2011 Raventos i Blanc "de Nit" Rosé Conca del Riu Anoia

SKU #1145583 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 De Nit is a blend of Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada and Monastrell (only a small percentage, around 5%) partly from their own vineyards and partly from other suppliers aged for 33 months in bottle. The wine is very pale faded-pink colored with notes of dried roses, yeasts and fennel. The palate is very tasty, with pungent acidity and persistent bubbles, ending very dry. Drink now-2016.

Wine & Spirits

 With its strawberry fruit and pine-like spice, this is a clean, tart rosé for rillettes.  (8/ 2014)

Wine Enthusiast

 Dusty, yeasty citrus aromas are elegant, smoky and dry. In the mouth, it is well developed and a touch short, but with crispness and focus. Flavors of peach and mild citrus are slightly briny.  (7/ 2014)

Wine Spectator

 A pale rosé, this version is structured by firm acidity and displays a smoky underpinning and subtle notes of raspberry, tea rose and toasted almond. (Web-2014)

K&L Notes

Raventos i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos, a member of the Codorníu family who wished to create a small, quality-oriented winery that would stand apart from the larger wineries in the area. Today they own about 300 acres of vineyards (with a high percentage of chalk in the soil, like Champagne) planted mostly to local varieties such as Macabeo (Viura), Xarel-lo and Parellada. All three of these grapes, as well as a small portion of direct press Monastrell, are found in this delicate, beautiful rosé bottling.
