Cava Champion. Distinct apple aroma sets this sparkler apart, as well as the slightly fuller flavors of vanilla and lemon cream on the palate. This wine’s hint of sweetness rounds it out and gives it substance. Constant string of beads is pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. Refreshing. Great buy.

Clean flavors of apple lend this rounds Cava a simple goodness. It’s dry, even as the finish hints at a caramel richness, a flavor and feel that would work with seared scallops.

Chalky, lemony aromas and lightly buttery yellow plum flavors give this bargain bubbly more pop than pretty much anything else in this price range. Even the dry, lime-tinged finish sparkles. It’s light and not particularly complex, but it’s still a steal.

This bubbly’s simplicity is its calling card. It pitches sweet pear aromas along with notes of white bread. Flavors of orange, lemon and melon are just as they should be, with a touch of sweetness. Not terribly complex, but correct in a steady, mass-appeal way.

Consistency at a good price is what this textbook cava is all about. The bouquet offers you basic fruit-cocktail aromas, while the palate is sort of plump as it pours on the nectarine and ripe peach flavors. Easygoing, with some weight and roundness.

Bright yellow gold. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Yellow apples and butter aromas follow through well on the palate. finishes with an intriguing spicy note.

There’s nothing not to like about this affordable Spanish bubbly. The nose is a little candied and shy, but it’s pleasant overall. The palate foams a bit more than a stately Cava might, but the flavors of pear, apple and grapefruit are honest. Fresh yet soft, simple and easygoing.

Shows an appealing earthy-chalky note alongside daisies and fresh ginger that gives this Cava more complexity than most others. Spicy and earthy on the finish.

Neutral yet clean, with pineapple and lemon-lime on both the nose and palate. Nothing out of the ordinary here. It’s exactly as it has been for years, bubbly, a touch sweet and satisfying.

Yellow apple aromas and flavors get some pick-up from nectarine, and while it’s sweet and a bit candied, that’s the Carta Nevada style. The finish picks up some extra size, leaving a big wash of sweet citrus flavors.

Packed with pear and straw flavors, this is a touch sweet, but attractive and balanced by firm acidity.

This charming sparkler is marked by citrus and hay scents, with a light touch of sweetness in the finish; it’s ideal for tapas of any kind.

: June, 2001

Strong butter and toast aromas, with notes of sweet lemon oil. Canned peach and pear flavors, with a good dose of mineral and pineapple; acidic finish. Cream sauces.
