Bright straw-colored yellow with green tones. Smoked and toasted notes on the nose. Mountain flowers and nuts that will quite possibly fuse into a pleasing butter aroma of café au lait caramel, and even a few forest, dried fig and marron glacé tones. The bubbles pack an elegant attack, with pronounced overtones of ripeness, pine nut bread, and pastries, thoroughly covering the palate and bringing back memories of nut shells, rosemary, rye, malt, pralines, dry bread... good feel to the foam, which evokes cream on some parts of the palate.
The 2005 III Lustros Gran Reserva Brut Nature (disgorged January 2012) is a blend of 70% Xarello and 30% Macabeu from the 5-hectare -La Plana- vineyard that lies 200 meters above sea-level. It spends seven years on the lees and is dosaged with 100-year-old Solera wine. It possesses brilliant clarity on the nose with touches of oyster shell, citrus lemon, wet limestone and yellow flowers. The palate is supremely well-balanced with electrifying acidity on the entry, displaying subtle notes of apricot, lemon curd and quince that lead to a perfectly balanced finish. This is a wonderful Cava that deserves 2-3 hours aeration.
