Vértice Cuvée Bruto Espumante
The NV Espumante Bruto Cuvée (Vértice) is a new concept: this is the first time this was made as a non-vintage wine. The release being reviewed can still be identified by the clearly marked disgorgement date on the back: November 2015. It is a blend of three vintages (60% from 2011, and 20% each of 2009 and 2010) and a variety of typical Douro grapes (for the newest vintage, principally 27% Touriga Franca, 37% Gouveio, 15% Malvasia Fina and 9% Viosinho, with smaller dollops of other local grapes). Tight and toasty, with a very slight oxidative hint for an interesting edge, this is beautifully conceived, one of the nicest 'Cuvées' that I've yet seen. There's also a bit of smoke on the nose, but it folds into the whole nicely and fades steadily with air. The acidity allows this to grip the finish and linger. It is an excellent value, more complex and interesting than the typical sparkler in this price range. Score - 90. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Feb. 7, 2016)
