'Best Buy' and 87 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$11 list] A mild, clean nose offers hints of clover and talcum powder, along with citrus and apple notes. This is simple on the palate, while chalky lime and apple flavors finish fresh. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2017)"
'Best Values,' Wine Spectator: "Fresh and balanced, with a creamy bead supporting apple puree, pastry cream, anise and preserved lemon notes. Drink now. (4/30/13)"
'Bronze Medal,' Decanter: "(11.5% alcohol) Notes of lemon and brioche on the nose elegantly matched on the palate with a crisp, juicy character. (Oct 2010)"
Segura Viudas is one of the top Spanish sparkling wine producers, notes for its high production standards and artisan Cavas. Seguar Viudas Brut Reserva, a méthode Champenoise Cuvée of Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarel-lo grapes grown in the renowned Penedès region of Spain, is clean and delicate, yet rich in flavor. Aged in the bottle for a minimum of three years, this fine cuvée is fairly crisp with an interesting floral note and mouth-pleasing sensation of creaminess.
Tasting note: The nose shows some yeast and dough aromas, along with lemon and red apple. The flavor is sweet Meyer lemon and red apple, and though it's not long in the finish, this is crisp and pleasing. This is an ideal Cava for parties and for very light appetizers.
