2016 Raventós i Blanc, `Textures de Pedra` Blanc de Noirs
“Pale yellow. A highly complex bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear, quince, orange and pungent flowers, along with hints of tarragon and ginger. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated tangerine, Anjou pear, persimmon and honeysuckle flavors that pick up a smoky nuance on the back half. Blends power and delicacy with a deft hand and finishes extremely long and precise, with repeating florality and a touch of smoky lees. This finely detailed, vibrant wine delivers superb value in the context of world-class sparklers.
