Clos Lentiscus Sumoll Reserva Famila Blanc de Noirs Brut Nature 2013

Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainObscurities abound in this characterful natural Spanish sparkler, a biodynamically farmed blanc de noirs from the sumoll grape. From a single vineyard planted on sandy calcareous soils in the 1930s in Garraf National Park, this wine uses the property's rosemary honey to kickstart the secondary fermentation in bottle, lending an earthy honeyed headiness to the red apples, cherries, cranberry and tight spicing on the brisk, bone-dry palate. This bold wine spends 30 months on the lees before disgorgement. Finishes astringent and food-ready. My bottle was disgorged in spring 2018.Tasted: 25 March 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: Spain 17.00 Spain Producer: Clos LentiscusDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
