Raventos denit

Brut Rosé, "de Nit" 2013

Raventós i Blanc

Clean, pure and almost crystalline with subtle citrus, fresh white fruit and a touch of cassis. A smooth, voluminous and fruity texture with a pleasant freshness and fine bubbles. Driven by a very good balance, this long lingering cava stretches to a finish pleasantly reminiscent of fresh fruit.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Pale orange. Intense red berry, blood orange and rose pastille scents, along with zesty minerality and a hint of white pepper. The juicy, focused and energetic palate reveals vibrant, mineral-tinged tangerine and raspberry flavors that deepen and expand with air. This vintage shows more depth and breadth than the 2012, with a taut, sharply focused finish that echoes the floral and red fruit notes emphatically." (vinous)
  • "91 points. The 2013 De Nit is a blend of the three classical white grapes from the region, Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada and a pinch (5%) of red Monastrell sourced from the historical Viña de la Plana. The wine had an average of 24 months in contact with the lees (18 for the first disgorgement and up to 30 for the last bottles before they finish the vintage and start with a new one). The color is extremely pale (it could even pass as a Blanc de Noir) and the nose is very similar to the 2013 L'Hereu, perhaps not as fine, with very nice, clean fruit. The palate might have a little more weight, with faint flower notes, very good acidity and a little bit of tannin coupled with acidity that gives it length and persistence and a distinct elegant rusticity. I'm not a great fan of pink sparkling wine in general, but I'm a fan of this one. This is a perfect aperitif wine." (Robert Parker)
