Filipa Pato "3B" Rosé Extra Bruto Bairrada

SKU #1379571 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A blend of indigenous grapes Baga and Bical from Bairrada (hence the name 3B), this traditional-method sparkling exudes texture, elegance and salinity. Husband-and-wife team extraordinaire Filipa Pato and William Wouters deliver mineral tension and purity of fruit, seen here in the clear outline of the cranberry, pink grapefruit and pomegranate notes, topped by savoury aniseed and tarragon.

Outer quote mark The current release of Filipa Pato’s non-vintage Beiras “3B” Extra Brut Rosé is composed of a blend of seventy-one percent Baga and twenty-nine percent Bical. The vins clairs are fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and the wine is aged nine months sur latte prior to disgorgement and does not see any dosage. It is fairly deep salmon in color and offers up a gorgeous bouquet of blood orange, rhubarb, rye bread, chalky soil tones, citrus peel and a topnote of dried rose petals. On the palate the wine is bright, young and full, with a lovely core of fruit, fine mineral undertow, frothy mousse and a long, youthfully complex and well balanced finish. This is a bit more approachable out of the blocks than Filipa’s Blanc de Blancs, but it is still a wine that will be even better if given just a bit of cellaring. Inner quote mark (5/2023)

K&L Notes

A blend of red Baga and white Bical grapes, this is a fantastic, very low dosage (this is DRY!) rosé sparkler. Filipa Pato learned from Mr. Bairrada himself, her father Luis Pato, and currently makes her own wines in a winery they both share. Famous for its highly calcareous clay soil, Bairrada makes red wines that bring to mind Barolo, whites which are similarly fine and age-worthy, as well as some of the very best Champagne method sparkling wines on the Iberian peninusla.

This sparkling wine is unique and delicious. There is a beautiful deep rust color that is very inviting. In the mouth it is very dry with structure of a red wine. It is lively and tasty and,while good alone, will go particularly well with foods like mushrooms and lite cheeses.
