Review

Different factors come together to make this wine a top-quality one. Firstly, the chalky-soil Garraf area on the Catalan coast where it is produced. Added to this is the quality of the winery itself; Can Ràfols dels Caus is one of the most prestigious cellars in the area. Last but not least, the wonderful Chenin grape, a stranger to the Garraf. Robert Parker fell in love with the 2014 vintage and awarded it 95 points.

Interesting

It is a good example of a Chenin Blanc but a bit pricey when compared to Loire Valley in terms of quality/price It takes some time to open and understand the different layers of fruit in it but it lacks a bit of acidity for my personal taste. Nevertheless a good wine to try something different

Buen exponente

Correcto monovarietal de Chenin, uva en la que es difícil encontrar vinos nacionales. Delicado y equilibrado, el precio es elevado pero merece la pena probarlo.

Seco.Amargoso.Fresco.Tiene volumen; pero es más largo que ancho.Complejo.Buen retronasal.Me a recordado a un blanco de Bernard Baudry(Loira) probado hace poco.

Blanc espagnol réputé

Robe jaune or limpide. Nez très particulier de fumé. Attaque franche. Bouche acide et un peu amer. Note de citron et d'amande.

Vino súper redondo

Vino blanco con mucha frescura y esquisito para arroces y pescados con un final en boca espectacular muy buen vino
