Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2001 Enoteca Personal Manuel Raventos, a special blend of 60% Xarello and 40% Parellada from their Clos del Serral and Creueta del Coll plots (and from 2007 onwards the cuvee is only Xarello) vineyards, which aged for seven years in bottle in contact with the lees. It has a bright golden color, much darker than the 2000, with abundant notes of roasted nuts, smoke, toasted bread, honey and caramel. It has lots of freshness, and underneath you still find fruit notes. The palate is compact, balanced, elegant and complex, with imperceptible bubbles that just add texture and give freshness with great persistence, very tasty and supple with a chicken-broth, umami taste. A great aged Cava. 7,958 bottles were produced, but most of them were disgorged and sold years ago and only a fraction remain and are offered now as Enoteca. Drink now-2019.
