2011 Raventos i Blanc "de la Finca" Gran Reserva Conca del Riu Anoia

SKU #1225394 92 points Vinous

 Yellow-gold. Zesty mineral and orange zest flourishes brighten musky pear skin, peach pit, chamomile and brown butter aromas. Full, fleshy and emphatically dry, with sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are accented by fennel, toasted nuts and chalky mineral notes. Walks a fine line between richness and delicacy, finishing extremely long and emphatically stony. This bottling is consistently one of Spain's finest and most complex sparkling wines -- and this year's release is no exception. It's one of greatest bubbly values in the world, too. (JR)  (11/2015)

 This Catalonian sparkler is attractive from the start. Aromas of bready yeast, crisp white fruits and white flowers feed into a full but friendly palate with smooth bubbles and nothing caustic. Complex flavors of citrus, nectarine and mustard finish with intensity and character. (MS)  (5/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 The new 'not Cava' appellation. Tight, focussed nose is impressively clean and fruity. There's a map of the very vineyard on the back label. Very frothy initially but a comfortable, well balanced, sophisticated drink eventually. (JR)  (3/2015)

K&L Notes

Produced from 6 distinctive parcels on the Raventos property, this gran reserva bottling from Raventos is one of our very best sparkling wines in stock. Aromas of subtle toast, apple and citrus lead to a very bright palate, focused and with terrific energetic drive. The wine spends four years on the lees which add complexity, but given the quality of the raw material here there is still a very bright and youthful quality to this wine.
