Wine & Spirits magazine writes that Paul Cheneau Reserve Cava Brut Blanc de Blancs has “Classical Cava scents of nuts and citrus [that] give this a burst of flavor. It hints at pear and anise in a sweet middle, then cleans up in the end.” We’re no wine experts, but this much we know: no trip to Barcelona is complete without picking up a bottle of cava (the native champagne) from the Penedés region, which is less than hour west of Barcelona by tour bus. See how the famous bubbly is produced by taking a guided tour of the Giro Ribot vineyards, followed by a tasting session to whet your appetite. There’s really nothing else like it in the world.
