2015 Can Mayol Loxarel "Reserva Familiar" Brut Nature Classic Penedes (Previously $26)

SKU #1432478 Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dusty yeasty aromas are natural and dry, fitting for brut nature. A citric palate is cleansing after initially feeling sharp, while this tastes of crisp citrus fruits and green apple. A stony finish is focused and direct. (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

K&L Notes

Can Mayol, which bottles under the trademarked name "Loxarel," is a winery that has farmed organically for 15 years. The Mitjan family, owners of Can Mayol, also employ some biodynamic treatments. They keep animals, including chickens, a horse, and a donkey named Garnatxa. While the focus is on "Brut Nature" (no dosage added) sparkling wine production, they also produce some very interesting still wines. In their chalky, high-altitude vineyards (above 2,400 feet for their highest vines, among the highest in the Penedès D.O.), Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir thrive and pick up an incredible minerality, which makes these wines wonderfully distinctive and very exciting to drink. Featuring some of the property's oldest, most prized parcels of Xarel-lo grapes, the Reserva Familiar sees over six years on its lees. This is very impressive bubbly that we can honestly say gives a lot of Champagne at twice the price a real run for its money.

This Spanish sparkler is one to give Champagne a run for its money! Incredibly crisp and finely textured. This brut nature delivers salty, citrus, apricot notes, with hints of nutty flor-like characteristics that add to its complexity. This wine has a lot of personality that foils the likes of the great grower-producer Champagnes, but comes to you for half of the price!

This is a wonderful sparkling wine from Spain. It offers a lot of wine for the price. Full bodied, dry and round, with a clean crisp finish. It is nice alone and will go very well with fish, salads and chicken.
